Ulster County Women of Note Exhibit
Coming March through mid-April

This project was conceived during the spring of 2015 in anticipation of the Suffragist Movement anniversary in 2017. Ellenville Public Library & Museum and the Ulster County Historical Society joined forces to develop a year-long celebration extending from October 2016 to October 2017.
This exhibit was the first in a year long celebration. The creators' desire was to highlight Ulster County women, from all walks life, that had great commitment to their communities and their causes. Through the participation of many Ulster County organizations, the creators collected information on a diverse range of women.

As a result, twelve panels featuring individual women of Ulster County that have made significant contributions to women’s opportunities in Ulster County were created.

This project was made possible by a New York Council for the Humanities Action Grant.

19th century clothing and accessories like hats, gloves, parasols and fans will be on display during the Women of Note show.
