AARCH Tour: The Life and Legacy of Inez Milholland

Inez Milholland never forgot her Adirondack roots, even as she was heralded as the American suffrage movement’s most glamorous messenger in the 1910s. Inez gained national fame astride a white horse at the head of the March 3, 1913 suffrage procession in Washington, D.C. She became the nation’s suffrage martyr when she collapsed and died at age 30 near the end of a grueling cross-country campaign for the National Woman’s Party in support of a federal suffrage amendment. Her final public words, “Mr. President, how long must women wait for liberty?” became the rallying cry of the NWP’s unprecedented picketing of the White House.

This AARCH outing will include a tour of the Meadowmount School of Music (the Milholland estate) and a stop at Milholland’s grave site in the Lewis Cemetery. We will then enjoy a catered dinner featuring local farm fare at the Whallonsburg Grange followed by an evening lecture by Inez Milholland biographer Linda Lumsden, an associate professor in the School of Journalism at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

The tour begins at 3 p.m. and ends around 9 p.m.

FEE: $60 for AARCH members and $70 for non-members. Dinner and admission to the evening program is included.
