Remarkable Women In And Around Ossining

March 15 - April 5

Remarkable Women In And Around Ossining

“Remarkable Women In and Around Ossining” is a multi-modal exhibit that will highlight the lives and accomplishments of 16 women who lived in our midst.  Some, like abolitionist Sojourner Truth, need little introduction, while others, like Anne M. Dorner, have a middle school named after them yet remain a mystery.

Through words, pictures, and artifacts, you’ll experience the personality of each woman, the history around them, and learn about their contributions to our community and the world.

The list includes artists and activists, abolitionists and suffragists, philanthropists and missionaries.

It’s an eclectic group, bound together by one essential element – they all made a difference to the world in front of them.

“A person’s legacy isn’t all about the grand sweep of history; sometimes it’s about quiet choices that touch the lives of others.”
– Patti Davis
