Join us as we celebrate Women's History month with a presentation about the Sanctified Sisters of Colesville.
Sanctified Sisters of Colesville: The Hidden History of Commonwealth Farm Speaker: Julianne Mangin
Learn the hidden history behind a feminist commune that ran Commonwealth Farm Inn in Colesville from 1903 to 1947. These savvy businesswomen ran an inn and restaurant that was a popular country retreat for Washingtonians. How did they end up in Montgomery County, and why was their presence forgotten? It’s a fascinating story of women determined to control their own spiritual and economic destinies.
