Talk March 13 (GF Library) Did Gramma have a filling station ?

Posted on Mar 9, 2024 in Uncategorized

If you missed the initial presentation you have a chance again this coming week, March 13 at the Greenfield Library.
Local authors Sara Campbell and Shari Strahan will talk about their book and research.

In exploring the town files, they found documentation addressing the special handling of women owning businesses, and the Married Woman’s Property Act of 1855, leading to many interesting stories.  A number of these are documented in their new book.

Greenfield records of women owned businesses registered under the Married Woman’s Property Act.

You can get the book at the talk, signed of course, or at Lulu (appropriately enough)
