Sanctified Sisters of Colesville at Commonwealth Farm presented by Montgomery History – Virtual Women’s History Month Program w/ Julianne Mangin
March 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
In this lecture on 3/12 at 2pm, you’ll learn how these savvy businesswomen ran an inn and restaurant that was a popular country retreat for Washingtonians. How did they end up in Montgomery County, and why was their presence forgotten? It’s a fascinating story of women determined to control their own spiritual and economic destinies. Julianne Mangin is a family history researcher, blogger, and former librarian and web developer at the Library of Congress, based in Silver Spring. LOG IN AT: https://mcpl.events/commonwealth-farm
