The Old Stone Fort Museum is set to host a lecture on the long battle for Women’s Suffrage, led by Glens Fall’s Chapman Historical Museum Educator and Celebrating Suffrage in Greater Glens Falls member Kim Harvish, on Thursday, July 25th, at 7 pm.
Harvish will lead participants through some of the most pivotal moments on the long road to the passing of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1920, starting with the First Women’s Rights Convention in 1848 in Seneca Falls, NY.
Reenactors will also perform women’s suffrage songs, talk about the significance of bicycles and even depict anti-suffragettes.
Admission to the lecture is $5 for adults and free for students and Schoharie County Historical Society members. Refreshments will be provided by the Schoharie Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
The Old Stone Fort Museum Complex is located in the village of Schoharie at 145 Fort Road, off NY State Rt. 30, 2.5 miles south of Interstate 88 Exit 23.
More information on the 2019 Lecture Series and other events is available on the museum website, or by calling (518) 295-7192.
