“Sanctified Sisters of Colesville: The Hidden History of Commonwealth Farm”
with Julianne Mangin
Tuesday, March 30 @ 2:00 p.m.
Learn the hidden history behind a feminist commune that ran Commonwealth Farm Inn in Colesville from 1903-1947. These savvy business women ran an inn and restaurant that was a popular country retreat for Washingtonians. How did they end up in Montgomery County, and why was their presence forgotten? It’s a fascinating story of women determined to control their own spiritual and economic destinies.
