Here comes the bride

June is traditionally the month for many couples to marry. This was certainly the case when Mildred Elliott married Norbert Trowbridge on June 7, 1941, in the newly-named village of Westlake. The name was officially changed from Dover in 1940.

Mildred was the granddaughter of Ziba and Sarah Hall. The Halls were a prominent family in Dover Township.

The blushing bride and her groom, both 25 years old, are pictured with Mildred's parents, Pearl and Gilbert Elliott.

The Clague House Museum will have several wedding dresses on display during July and August. The museum is open the first and fourth Sundays of the summer months, and by appointment. The Clague House Museum provides a picturesque setting for wedding photography as well as engagement photos. Please contact the historical society for more information, 440-808-1961.
