Sarah Hickling Bradford and her husband, Capt. Gershom Bradford, built our Bradford House on Tremont Street in 1808. Sarah, or "Sally" as she was known to friends and family, was a remarkable and capable woman. She oversaw the management of the household as well as her husband's business affairs while he was away at sea. For a good part of every year, like so many seaman's wives, she was a single parent, raising her four daughters and making decisions about their education. She was also a noted social reformer. #WomensHistoryMonth

A very important article, as we seek to tell more women's history at the Bradford House museum in Duxbury.

"We found that in classrooms across the country, teachers are looking for new and interesting ways to teach history, including the incorporation of more women’s history.

And, while teachers want to include more women’s history, they weren’t always confident with the content or sources to present it to their students. It was this need that encouraged us to create a week devoted to women’s history entitled Martha Washington and the Women of the 18th Century."
