Community stories from our past in the comfort of your home
We hope you are doing well. To enrich our minds and spirits during this strange time of isolation together, the Conservancy is sending out new activities by email.
The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote.
In celebration of this historic anniversary, and Women’s Equality Day on August 26th, we’ll be featuring stories or elements throughout August that focus on women and history. We would love to hear about other remarkable women and their achievements! Who are your female heroes? Let us know about those that inspire you! Contact us at
