Join Mabry-Hazen House for a titillating new tour series, Rated R for Risqué: Courtship, Romance, and Intimacy in the Hazen Household on Thursday - Saturday, March 10-12, 2022! 

Preserving the stories of three generations of women and their experiences in and out of love, Mabry-Hazen House will explore romantic conventions, behaviors, etiquettes, beliefs, and taboos at the turn of the 20th century. Learn how each generation thought about romance and how it changed over the decades and generations, so we can share what it tells us about our past and present experiences in finding and maintaining relationships. With much of the original furniture and decor owned by the family on display, visitors will see exactly where romantic interactions and exchanges occurred. Beyond the original artifacts, the story of Evelyn Hazen and her ill-fated fifteen year engagement to Ralph Scharringhaus and the subsequent breach of promise and seduction lawsuit gives an intimate glimpse into the thoughts and actions of a couple falling into and out of love in the 1920s. With these provocative resources, Rated R for Risqué will flirt with a history of romance and love in the Hazen Household.
