Women Belong in History Books contributing author Deborah Kidder will discuss remarkable women from the Mohawk Valley. The presentation will focus on the lives and legacy of three women born near Oneida County in the 19th century: Myrtilla Miller, Helen Huxtable Young, and Utica native Elizabeth Farrell. Kidder will share three new stories of women not included in the popular local history book series. Join us to celebrate Women’s History Month and the untold stories of three local women. This program takes place in the History Center’s main gallery on Saturday, March 23 starting at 1:00 PM.
