Maria Mitchell and the Daring Daughters of Nantucket Island
September 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join the curator of the Mitchell House for a walking tour concerning the lives of Maria Mitchell and Nantucket’s famous and infamous women, as well as the lesser known women of our island. Learn why whaling, Quakerism, and the isolation of an island afforded these women opportunities that women elsewhere in America at the time were not afforded.
