The East Hampton Historical Society is set to host a one-day exhibition at the Clinton Academy Museum entitled Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence, on Saturday, September 19th, from 10 am to 2 pm.
This poster exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution is based on their larger installation and marks the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote, made possible through the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The exhibit will be supplemented with objects from East Hampton’s suffrage story.
In addition, the East Hampton Historical Society will welcome the League of Women Voters of East Hampton, Shelter Island, and the North Fork to the exhibit to offer voter registration.
Admission is free, pre-registration is required.
The Clinton Academy Museum is located at 151 Main Street, East Hampton. For more information or to register, visit the East Hampton Historical Society’s website.
