In recognition of Women’s History Month and the upcoming 100th anniversary of women receiving the right to vote, the Bartow History Museum’s new temporary exhibit, Women of Bartow, features the stories of over 25 women who have made an impact on Bartow County and beyond dating back to the early 1800s through the present. Through artifacts and images, this exhibit highlights their contributions to a variety of fields including business, education, art, writing, social movements, and more.

The exhibit will open on Thursday, March 26th, with an opening reception beginning at 6:15 p.m., followed by our evening lecture at 7 p.m. featuring guest speaker Robert Jones discussing his book, 30 Most Influential Women in Georgia History.

Also, in conjunction with the opening of our new temporary exhibit, the Bartow History Museum will honor notable contemporary women for carrying on the legacy of influential women in Bartow. A list of those being honored is included below.  Tickets
