Heritage Alliance: Women’s Suffrage Storytelling
December 9, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum is excited to welcome local storyteller Pam Miller as she shares a special story about the fight for women’s suffrage in the museum’s Victorian parlor. Tennessee played a pivotal role in the passage of the 19th amendment. Guests can tune in for the nail biter of a story via Zoom or the Chester Inn Museum’s Facebook page where it will be livestreamed. The Zoom link is available on the Chester Inn’s Facebook page and the Heritage Alliance’s website. Pam Miller will share her story at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, December 9th.
Pam Miller oversees the Storytelling Resource Place in Jonesborough, Tennessee. The purpose of the Storytelling Resource Place is to collect, preserve, and make available storytelling resources in a public space where people may use the resources and view the artifacts. They are located in the old Slemons House in Mill Spring Park. We are excited that Pam will be joining us at the Chester Inn Museum to share such an important story.
You can learn more about women’s suffrage in Washington County at the Jonesborough/Washington County History Museum in the Visitor’s Center. The event on December 9th is virtual only.
