Women’s History at Bellefontaine Cemetery
March is Women’s History Month. Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum is the final resting place of several strong, inspirational women who have impacted history as we know it. This list includes a Nobel prize-winning scientist (Gerty Cori), a Pulitzer-prize winning poet (Sara Teasdale), an Olympic gold medalist (Martha N. Brown), an author of one of the world’s most widely read cookbooks (Irma Rombauer), a survivor of the Titanic (Elisabeth W. Robert), a spy (Margaret McClure), the “Mother of Kindergarten” (Susan Blow), and generations of suffragists who fought tirelessly to secure the right to vote for women.
Join us for an exciting, 50-minute Zoom presentation. We will explore the rich heritage of Women’s History connected to Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum in this presentation.
