Grand Opening Postponed
We are transforming the Museum into Suffrage Headquarters reminiscent of the late 1890’s with a blast of purple, yellow and white. These were the official colors of the suffrage movement and these colors were seen during parades, marches, conventions and meetings from 1848 – 1920. There will be a timeline of key events, examples of marketing tactics, along with information on the founding women of the movement, to help tell the story.
The SUFFRAGE HEADQUARTERS Grand Opening is postponed. Check again later for more details. We plan to offer offer special performances, speakers, suffragists, and food when we open again.
