Event description
Fabric of America Series, Part 2: Natural Women: Nature, Maternity, and Liberty after the Revolution

About this event

Join Colorado State University’s Dr. Ann Little will examine women’s identity around the turn of the 19th century. Did the shape and silhouette of clothes impact their experiences? How did ideas of nature inspire these women? Women during this period were touring natural wonders and writing about their beauty and being inspired by nature. But during this time, they were also considered natural resources for a nation that was eager to populate the continent with white American families. How was their American identity formed and reimagined by the inner and outer societal forces? Afternoon tea refreshments will be provided.

There will be a companion exhibit on display at CCHA.

This event can be subject to change due to COVID.

Founded in 1939, the Clarke County Historical Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to preserving the history of Clarke County.  Our offices are located in the historic Coiner House at 32 East Main Street in Berryville, Virginia.

Also located in the Coiner House is a museum, genealogy research library, and an extensive archive of historical material relating to Clarke County and the northern Shenandoah Valley.

CCHA also owns the Burwell-Morgan Mill, a fully operational 18th century grist mill located in nearby Millwood, Virginia.  Our volunteer millers grind a variety of grains as well as give tours of this historic site every Saturday from May through November.  (The mill is closed from after Thanksgiving through the end of April).

The Clarke County Historical Association’s mission is to help preserve the historical resources and records of Clarke County and to foster their use, understanding, and enjoyment through stewardship and education.
