Making their Way: Colonial Women in Newark

  • Crane House & Historic YWCA 110 Orange Road Montclair, NJ, 07042 United States (map)

Official town records contain scant reference to the contributions of women in the colonial period, but other archival sources show that colonial women — young or old, well-educated or barely literate, slave or free — found ways to make their way and contribute to the development of early Newark. This program is presented by Timothy J. Crist, a Montclair resident and President of the Newark History Society. Suggested donation: $5/person. Crane House and Historic YWCA, 110 Orange Road, Montclair in the Founder’s Room.
