The Old Manse was home to many remarkable women who were artists, thinkers, and scientists. Each Saturday this month, we will explore the lives of two of those women, artist Sophia Peabody Hawthorne, and scholar, teacher, and botanist Sarah Alden Bradford Ripley. This special house tour will help visitors find traces of their experiences in rooms of the home more traditionally peopled by great men, and reflect on the important role women have to play in shaping history.
