Discover the interesting lives of women who lived in Essex! This exhibit – the first of its kind in Essex – expands our understanding of the women of Essex and the ways they have influenced our town and reflected the larger story of women’s history. The exhibit includes: • Women whose ingenuity got the first meeting house built • A young woman’s 19th century journal • One of the first woman auctioneers in the country • A professional female baseball player • A Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy ...and more! FREE admission. The project is financed by a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, with matching support from Essex Historical Society and Shipbuilding Museum and private donations.
