3/1/24 - 6/30/24 West Orange Women: Making History Part Two

Updated: Mar 7

Come and see our upcoming exhibition celebrating exceptional local women! It will run in Winter Garden City Hall through Women's History Month (March), with an opening event on Thursday, March 14 at 5:30 PM. Following the City Hall display, it will be available for viewing in the Winter Garden Heritage Museum from April 1 through June 30.

The highlighted women contributed in diverse ways. From teacher, to volunteer, to preacher, to mother, they used their unique talents and dispositions to help others to the best of their abilities.  While these are sometimes considered thankless jobs, these women found value in bringing comfort, safety, and smiles to others. Though they did not seek appreciation for their altruistic acts, we nonetheless salute them- something we have hope to accomplish with this exhibit.
