Louise Welles Murray and Her Legacy
I (Deb Twigg) will be presenting "Louise Welles Murray and Her Legacy" this Sunday, February 1, 2009 at the Waverly Library in downtown Waverly, NY. It will be a part of the Waverly Library's "First Sundays" series from 2:30 - 4:30pm.
This presentation will be about Mrs. Murray and her life during a time when women were not allowed to vote, yet she founded the Tioga Point Museum and became a highly respected force in Pennsylvania Archaeology. Her life is an inspiring tale that is long overdue for celebration. If anyone wonders what (or who) inspired me to do what I do, look no farther than Louise Welles Murray. She is my hero.
This presentation will also be a great lead in to the upcoming "Murray Garden" presentation that is about a site in the Murray's garden in 1882 while workmen were digging up a drainage ditch and was the catalyst that put Louise and her family on the path to preserve our local archaeology. The Murray Garden presentation will be held on March 16th at SRAC from 6:30 - 7:30 pm (doors open at 6.) Exhibit hall free passes will be given to all attendees!
Hope to see you there!
