Amesbury Women: Their Daily Life at the Turn of the 20th Century
April 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:59 pm
Local author Edith Maxwell will present a special lecture exploring the experiences of Amesbury women and their lives in the decades surrounding the turn of the nineteenth century. At the time, the town was bustling with carriage factories, textile mills and other workshops, and farming and ship building thrived in outlying areas. Maxwell draws on her research and the writings of others, and brings in vignettes from diaries and oral histories of lifelong residents to tell the story of daily life through the experiences of Amesbury women.
