Women Homesteaders

  Marcia Hensley will share stories about amazing women from her book, Staking Her Claim, Women Homesteading the West.  One review of this very special collection of letters, oral histories and memoirs says, "Reading these accounts by women homesteaders is like discovering a dusty trunk in a beloved grandmother's attic."  We can't wait for Marcia to expand on these stories.  Marcia's book will available for purchase and signing.  During this year of celebration of Suffrage, we hope  you will join us for this special program.

Jane Ivinson Memorial

Girls School

Our June Tea offers a special presentation about our very own Girls' School by LPM, Konnie Cronk. You'll hear stories of University classes and the life skills and manners taught to the girls, ages 12 through 18, residing at the Ivinson Mansion. One "privilege" the girls had: " If a girl is on the Honor Roll at the end       of a school period, she may go downtown, shopping alone, for 1.5 hours on Saturday for as long as her behavior is up to the standards of Ivinson Hall." Or a  penalty:  "Any girl who breaks a rule or is resistive or negativistic in her attitude will be sent home."  Hear about the rules, privileges, principals, housemothers, and monitors influencing Ivinson Hall students for more than 36 years.  Some of our most supportive members of the Museum Association have been former Ivinson Hall Girls.

July 23, 2019 Tea, 4:00 p.m.

Women Who Made a Difference

We are recreating one of our most popular Tea programs about women who made a difference in their communities and our world.  Originally presented in 2003, it is most appropriate  that these pioneering spirits come to light again during the 150th Anniversary of Wyoming's Suffrage Act!  This tea gives us insight to Caroline Lockhart, Louisa Gardner Swain, Mary Godat Bellamy and others who did what needed to be done.  We stand on the shoulders of these who took a chance coming West and who buckled down to carve out communities.  Be inspired!

Call the museum office if you're not on the invitation list for these special Victorian affairs occurring at 4:00pm in the Alice Hardie Stevens Center one Tuesday in May, June, and July. Call the Museum if you would like to receive an invitation to a

Tea on Tuesday event.
