Homesteading Women, curated by Elizabeth Thompson, juxtaposes archival material illustrating the lives of women homesteaders of the 19th century with interviews and photographs of contemporary women homesteaders in and around Athens County. Historical women homesteaders often have been regarded as reluctant helpmeets to men, yet the records they left tell a different story, one that highlights the important role they played as well as their resourcefulness, creative problem-solving, and community-building. Contemporary women homesteaders and farmers demonstrate similar traits, skills, and values. 


Opening Reception Friday, September 23, 6 - 7:30 pm
