​Dive deep into the stories of some of the unheard voices in history at the Thoroughgood House on July 20.

In colonial times, women’s societal power was limited, but they were essential to maintaining their families and communities around them. “Herstory” focuses on these tales, including Susannah Sanford Thoroughgood, Sarah Offley, and their connection to the Thoroughgood House, as well as stories of matriarchal indigenous societies and the experiences of enslaved women at this time.

Tours run every 30 minutes from 5:30 to 8 p.m., are FREE and no advanced registration is required.

Tours include a "Create your Own" story activity. Bind your own book and continue writing your stories.
