CHB Women's History Month Tour


This 45 minute tour of Dr. Charlotte Hawkins Brown's home, Canary Cottage, will cover some of the history of women's education by looking at the schools Dr. Brown attended and interacted with throughout her life. You'll hear about the pioneers in women's education that supported Dr. Brown's journey and reflect on the changes in education over the course of her lifetime. Finally, you'll learn about girls experiences on campus at the Palmer Memorial Institute and other institutions serving young Black women in the early 20th century.


This is not a standard tour of Canary Cottage, and registration is not required but strongly recommended due to space being limited in the home! There is a $2 fee for the tour which you will pay upon arrival at the site.
