NOW SHOWING AT THE EXHIBIT GALLERY
True Women: Olive Dewey Plant and the Women of the Progressive Era
Located in The Carriage House, our Exhibit Gallery is now home to a new exhibit examining the roles and social expectations of mainstream American women at the turn of the 20th Century. “True Women: Olive Dewey Plant and the Women of the Progressive Era” invites guests to consider how social values and world events may have shaped the lives of women like Olive Plant, Alva Vanderbilt Belmont, and others.
This exhibit features historic images, memorabilia, and objects – including items owned by Olive Plant – that encourage guests to decide what it means to be a “True Woman”.
