Our Places Where Women Made History program brings much-needed recognition to the Huntsville women who shaped our local, state, and national history. Our programs are based on the original research and documentation compiled for the William G. Pomeroy Foundation historic marker and three Alabama Historical Association historic markers that recognize Alice Boarman Baldridge, Mary Binford, Ellen Brandon, India Herndon, Lou Bertha Johnson, Celia Love, Dora Lowery, Dr. Frances Roberts and Fannie Cabaniss.
We will debut two projects that turn our original research into family-friendly adventures. The first is a special edition of our highly successful Color Me, Huntsville coloring book solely dedicated to the Places Where Huntsville Women Made History. We will use the sketches of Christina Wegman and text of Donna Castellano to highlight the women who broke barriers and opened doors for us today. We will also debut a Women’s History Trail that uses photographs, newspaper headlines and other historical documents to introduce students, residents and visitors to the women who shaped our future.
We welcome all contributions!
