History Room Live: Old Ladies’ Home Collection

October 23, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Have you ever heard of the Old Ladies’ Home? Once located at 800 High Street in Bath, the uncommon institution served elderly women for nearly a century. History Room intern Maegan Rice will tell us what it was like to research, arrange, and describe the Old Ladies’ Home collection, housed at Patten Free Library. She’ll show us some of the records and papers that reside in the collection (including residents’ applications, treasurers reports, and diaries) and discuss how they can help us learn more about local women’s lives.
