Six of Arkansas’s First Ladies hosted supporters of the Old State House Museum’s Inaugural Gown exhibit Tuesday on the lawn of the Governor’s Mansion. KUAR’s Jacob Kauffman compiled this audio post-card of the first ladies and their gowns. 

Funds are being raised to restore gowns dating back to 1889 and to expand the First Ladies exhibit beyond the garments at the Old State House.
