Later today, I’m returning to the Shore & back to work on Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony: A Friendship That Changed the World. So here’s another post re our recent women’s history road trip: Trip summary: Three days, 880 miles, mostly through central New York. Three drive-in movie theaters. (No, we didn’t go). Farm stands with delicious cherries, blueberries, peaches, melons, raspberries. (Yes, we indulged.) Farm stand with piles of gorgeous purple and green heads of cabbage and corn and a pay-on-an-honor system lockbox. Nursery with table after table loaded with lush annuals and perennials. (We bought violet-purple phlox, parsley and snapdragons in a array of colors) and an honor-system-payment- lockbox. Visited 19 towns with women’s history sites featuring both women and men.
The picture is of Elizabeth Smith Miller’s house in Peterboro; recently bought by a couple who are determined to restore it. Since the early 1980s, her birthday has been celebrated in Peterboro. The program this year on 9/28, is highlighting her suffrage activities.
I’m counting on Dot to add a comment about Elizabeth Smith Miller!
