Living History @ Home: Meet the She-Merchants

Living History Days at N-YHS
Living History @ Home: Meet the She-Merchants
Join us online! | Wednesday, April 8 | 1-2 pm

Free; all ages 

Who were the she-merchants? They were the pioneering women who worked in business and trade in 18-century New York. Join us via Zoom to explore their unique stories and discover the goods and artifacts they imported, exported, and sold in their shops. Then, participants can make their own currency to use in the program.

New-York Historical and the DiMenna Children's History Museum are temporarily closed in order to help protect the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and the wider community during this outbreak of COVID-19. Your support is vital for our ability to continue serving the public. Please consider making a contribution to help fund all facets of our mission. DONATE HERE
