Women’s History Month: Local Museums Celebrate Martha Washington, Catheryna Rombout Brett, and Janet Livingston Montgomery

Ladies first: In honor of Women’s History Month, we celebrate the contributions of a diverse trio of Valley females

(page 1 of 4)

In 1987, the National Women’s History Project petitioned Congress to expand Women’s History Week to include the entire month of March. Since then, the National Women’s History Month Resolution has been approved each year with bipartisan support in the House and Senate. Of course, the Valley has no shortage of important female historical figures. We don’t have the space to feature all, so we have chosen three. Each made a lasting impact on the region, and left a monument to her life in the form of a historic house museum.
