In 2020, the Forest County Historical Society (FCHS) will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment, which gave women the right to vote. FCHS knows women from Forest County were active in this cause, as the Museum has pictures from a 1915 parade in Tionesta showing women dressed in appropriate clothing and carrying a banner promoting their views.
FCHS would like to compile records and place on display information about some notable women from Forest County history. They need some help with this project as women have been noticeably left out of the record books. If anyone knows of women who are notable for their contributions to Forest County, please provide FCHS with as much information about them as possible. Please email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to recognize them!
