Richmond Historical Society Annual Meeting and Winter Program:  Glimpses of 19th-century Richmond:  The Betsy Flagg Diary


On Sunday, February 11 at 3:00 pm, Richmond Historical Society archivist Karen Yaggy will share glimpses of life in 19th-century Richmond, as seen by Betsy Squires Flagg.  Flagg, a Kenyon Road farm wife, kept a diary from 1851 until her death in 1866.  Flagg used her diary to comment on local fashions and the doings of neighbors as well as to note daily activities at her family’s farm.  A slide show of period photos from the RHS collection will accompany the readings. This free event will be held in the Richmond Free Library Community Room.  All are welcome.

A brief RHS business meeting and election of officers will precede the presentation; refreshments provided by the RHS Board of Directors will follow.
