In recognition of Women’s History Month and in conjunction with the 150th Anniversary of Storer College, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park invites the public to participate in a special presentation entitled “Missionaries and Money: How Free Baptist Women Influenced Storer College” on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 2:00 PM. This program will focus on the history of the women who worked tirelessly to raise money for Storer College’s buildings’ fund and of those who were the missionary teachers from the 1870s to the 1910s.
The presentation will be held at the Mather Training Center, 2nd floor classroom. After the program, and weather permitting, attendees will be invited to walk the former Storer College campus with a park ranger to further discuss the buildings’ histories. For additional information, please call 304-702-5684.
