Program Description


What better way to honor Women's History Month than to learn about our famous and infamous Osage County women. Did you know there was a woman from the Frankenstein area who poisoned her husband? Or that the first woman mayor elected in Osage County was from Westphalia? What do you know about a woman who ran her own feed store and farm from Loose Creek in the 1950's? Or a woman of color who ran a dry cleaning business in Chamois? Come learn about these ladies and many more from Mary Zeilman and Julie Allen.  Refreshments will be provided. No registration required.
