The Berkshire Historical Society at Arrowhead, as part of its exhibit, "The Kimball-Salisbury Women: Chicago to Tor Court, 1890-1930," will be hosting a series of candlelight performances of "Evaline Speaks -- An Evening with Evaline Kimball."

The performances will be held at 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, March 1 through 16, at Arrowhead, 780 Holmes Road.

The exhibit tells the story of a family and their remarkable Berkshire Cottage, and features 20 dresses and gowns from the period, as well as photographs of Tor Court taken by Edwin Hale Lincoln.

Guests will be guided by Kimball herself, giving a unique perspective on the history of the gowns and the women who wore them. Kimball will be portrayed by WindRose Morris, a storyteller, performer, mask maker and designer.

The cost is $20 per person. Refreshments will be served.

Space is limited. Early reservations are recommended by contacting Betsy Sherman at or (413) 442-1793, ext. 10.
