"Women of Note in Erie Cemetery"

Join Betsy for a virtual tour of the graves of strong women who forged paths in the wilderness of the Pennsylvania frontier, then in a growing community where roles for women in general and especially women of color were limited. Each of these women overcame the perception that a woman’s place was (and even should be) limited to unseen and largely unappreciated labor.

Please join us on November 3rd, 2021 at 6:00 pm, for our pre-dinner cocktail and chat time and remember to bring your friends and acquaintances. Reservations are required.
