Sanctified Sisters of Colesville: The Hidden History of Commonwealth Farm

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.

Presented by Julianne Mangin, Montgomery History Speakers Bureau. Julianne Mangin is an independent researcher, writer, family historian, and cemetery preservationist.

This virtual program is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

After registering for the webinar, attendees will receive an email prior to the program with instruction to connect via Zoom.
