Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon: Why Women’s History?
The Mary Todd Lincoln House will celebrate Women’s History Month by hosting a salon titled Why Women’s History? at 7PM on Wednesday, March 23. How have women made history? Why have some women been remembered while others have been ignored? Why does women’s history matter? Salon guests will explore these compelling questions with Transylvania University professor Melissa McEuen, co-editor of Kentucky Women: Their Lives and Times.
Why Women’s History? is a part of the museum’s evening salon series inspired by Mrs. Lincoln’s Blue Room salons. At these intimate White House gatherings, politicians, literati, and friends discussed politics, literature, and gossip. Salons at the Mary Todd Lincoln House are held in the parlor of the museum and explore topics relating to Mrs. Lincoln and the present-day.
Space is limited. Reservations required.
Admission $10 members; $15 non-members.
The Mary Todd Lincoln House is located at 578 West Main Street in downtown Lexington.
