Celebrating National Women's History Month:
An Online Shaker Sketchbook
Opening March 1, the exhibit will grow daily during the month. Everyone has a story. Whether profound achievements or simple acts, great stories have something unexpected that is worth telling. In celebration of March, National Women's History Month, we feature the strange, funny, moving, yet not often told stories of 21 Shaker women. Read for yourself how extraordinary the stories of ordinary women can be. Each weekday a new Shaker biography will be featured.
Click on each of the images below to read the biographies of the Shaker women they represent.
Note: Some women may have more than one image associated with them.
All the image information is available in the biographies.
