Historically Speaking, A Virtual Lecture Series
Bernadette Rogoff Presents: We are Present and Future Women - Freehold Young Ladies' Seminary, 1845-1898
Presented by the Monmouth County Historical Association (MCHA). Co-Sponsored by the Monmouth County Library
In Celebration of Women's History Month
Bernadette Rogoff, author and Director of Collections at MCHA, has been curating Monmouth County history for three decades. Her impressive career has established her as one of the premier historians of Monmouth County history, with a staggering breadth of knowledge that is matched only by her natural storytelling ability.
There is no "one way" to classify the areas that Bernadette specialized in - from portraiture to 18th and 19th century textile identification and preservation, to the most unique and obscure objects in the collection! This lecture will spotlight the Freehold Young Ladies' Seminary, one of the most prestigious female educational institutions on the eastern seaboard, as well as give a glimpse into the lives of some of the impressive young ladies who attended, using primary source documents and objects from MCHA's collection.
Register below and join us on the third Thursday of each month at 7pm for a virtual lecture presented by Monmouth County's most interesting and well-respected historians!
