In Her Words: A Women's History Tour at Historic Huguenot Street

March is Women's History Month and the centennial of the ratification of women's suffrage in New York. Experience a women’s history tour starting Saturday, March 25, and running monthly through October of the 2017 tour season. The tour will follow the lives and stories of six women who played a role in local history. Visitors will be guided through four historic buildings and have the opportunity to hear from these figures from the past. The tour combines factual, historical information about these women with creative ingenuity, as visitors will get to hear cleverly composed monologues written and recorded by HHS staff and volunteers. Visitors will hear from a Native American sachem who signed the 1677 Indian Deed, an enslaved African owned by a Huguenot family, a colonial woman managing her own estate, an artist during the Progressive era and others.
