This season, included in your admission rate, you will have the rare opportunity to see many of Lynn Fontanne's marvelous gowns, dresses and accessories displayed in the Lunts' home.  We are honored to have these items on loan through the Fashion Department of Mount Mary University.  This is an experience that cannot be duplicated elsewhere other than on the estate of Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.
