Description

Between 1895 and 1899 three women who would have an impact on Weston were born. They all lived well into the late 1900s dying between 1979 and 1991. They all lived full lives both in Weston and beyond. None of them ever had children. They are Alice DeLamar, Eva Le Gallienne and Katherine Ordway and this exhibition celebrates their lives and accomplishments. Thanks to their efforts, more than 1,100 acres of land were set aside for the public’s enjoyment.

The Exhibit is open on Thursdays from 2:00pm - 4:00pm and by appointment. Please contact the Weston Historical Society at info@westonhistoricalsociety.org if you would like to visit the exhibit by appointment on a different day.

It is also open for viewing on Sunday, August 18 from 4:00pm - 7:00pm during Music at the Barn as well as on Saturday, September 14 from 2:00pm - 8:00pm during Westonstock!

None of this would be possible without our sponsors and the many, many hours devoted by our Board of Trustees and other volunteers. A special thank you to the Aspetuck Land Trust and the Nature Conservancy for their help in the development of the exhibition.
