Women Who Walked Ahead
From the first woman to sing live on radio, Eugenia Farrar to the first black female doctor in New York State, Susan Smith McKinney Steward, this trolley tour celebrates the pioneering women of Green-Wood. Among the many remarkable and inspiring stories you will encounter is that of Caroline Weldon, a widowed Brooklyn artist who traveled to the Dakota Territory to become an assistant and liaison to Sitting Bull (Weldon’s story was featured in the 2017 film, “Woman Walks Ahead” starring Jessica Chastain).
$20 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $25 for non-members
