Celebrate Women’s History Month by visiting the Westchester Township History Museum to learn more about local Duneland women at the new display “Women of Duneland,” opening Wednesday, March 4. It can be viewed at the museum through Mother’s Day, May 10 during regular hours, Wednesday through Sunday, 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Museum Curator Serena Ard will highlight the lives of several individual women and discuss the difficulties in researching women in local history on Sunday, March 8 at 2:00 p.m. at the museum. The public can learn about the life that early Duneland women led–where they worked, popular trends, and community effort.

“Women of Duneland” highlights the lives and legacies of several area women from the 1800s to the 2000s. Learn about women who made their marks on this community through their families, work, activism, and politics. This display is part of an ongoing project at the museum to bring the stories of local women into the larger Duneland story.

The Westchester Township History Museum, a free cultural and educational service of Westchester Public Library, is housed in the Brown Mansion at 700 W. Porter Ave., Chesterton. For more information, call the museum at219-983-9715.
