Welcome to the New Hartford, CT Historical Society.
Now Open! A presentation on the Prominent Women of New Hartford.
An exhibit on some of the prominent women of New Hartford, this will include opera singers, authors, and leaders of the civic and cultural community. This is free (though donations are always welcome!) and open to the public. This exhibit adds on to our October 24, 2012 lecture on the Prominent Women. It will feature artifacts, books, and recordings of performances by Alma Gluck and Tersa Stich-Randall.
New Hartford has never been known as a ‘destination’ town. However, it has had a long, proud, and quiet tradition of welcoming either returning famous individuals, as it might be Clara Louise Kellogg, or well-known people seeking a place conducive to productive, creative work, as it might be Nelia Gardener White. These were women who were at once members of a small, New England town and internationally known celebrities, equally happy perhaps to sing at a community event or at the great opera houses of Europe. They were independent women; their identities separate from, though often intimately connected with, their families and husbands.
If you wish to learn a bit more, do join us. The list includes, in no particular order: Clara Louise Kellogg, Julie Palmer Smith, Nelia Gardener White, Lillian Ludlam, Teresa Stich-Randall, Alma GLuck, Marcia Davenport, and Chloe Langston Hughes.
The exhibit will be open on Wednesdays from 7-9pm and on the second Saturday of every month from 12-2pm.
This presentation is made possible in part by the New Hartford Women’s Club. We thank them for their generous support.
