The Chenango County Historical Society’s Annual Member Meeting and public presentation will be 7:00pm on Thursday, November 19, 2015 at the CCHS Museum, 45 Rexford Street, Norwich. At 7:30pm, directly following the meeting, Professor Elizabeth A. Moore, Professor of Interior Design at Cazenovia College, will present a lecture called: “Enlightened Domesticity: Life of a Farm Woman in the Progressive Era”. Inspired by the diary entries of her great-grandmother, Harriet L. Howard, Prof. Moore examines the effects of emerging technologies, domestic advisors, social customs, and politics on a farming family’s busy life during the Progressive Era (1890-1920). Accompanied by many historic images, Moore investigates how the activities of an enterprising farm wife in early 20th century Sherburne, NY over-lapped with views of women’s proper roles according to the late 19th century “Cult of Domesticity”. Professor Moore’s presentation is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be provided. Both the evening’s member meeting and lecture will take place on the first floor of the museum, which is handicapped accessible. For more information, please call the museum at 607-334-9227. We look forward to seeing you!
