Women's Suffrage: A Long Path to Change
The Lincoln Historical Society's annual exhibit for 2020 titled, Women's Suffrage: A Long Path to Change, is in honor of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote. The exhibit explores the history of women’s suffrage in the United States with an emphasis on Vermont and Lincoln. Period photographs, posters, postcards, newspapers, and documents reveal the influential leaders of the suffrage movement, as well as the people involved closer to home.
The exhibit can be seen at the Lincoln Library through October 2020.
We Now Have Lincoln, VT Walking Tours!
Have you ever wondered about the history of the various houses and other buildings and sites in Lincoln? Well now you can learn all about them while strolling through our lovely town. The Lincoln Historical Society now has two walking tours of Lincoln Center.
