Lyman & Merrie Wood Museum of Springfield History, Springfield History Theater, Second Floor
Developed with the assistance of local historian and guest curator Frances Gagnon, this exhibition describes the challenges and accomplishments of a dozen women from Springfield’s past. From the daughter of the city's 17th-century founder to a 20th-century entrepreneur, these women are representative of many others who labored, often without recognition or compensation, to enhance life in the city. Features photos, video, portraits, archival documents, collections objects and more.
Presented in recognition of the 100th anniversary of Women’s History Month and the 375th anniversary of the founding of the city of Springfield.
