SEARCHING FOR SISTER MARY
Sister Mary Settles passed away 100 years ago as the last Shaker at Pleasant Hill. In the century since her passing, most people have come to identify Sister Mary only as this society’s last member, but who was she really?
Join us for the grand opening of the special exhibit, Searching for Sister Mary, and explore the life of Mary Settles as a Shaker, a mother, a teacher, a leader, a celebrity and a modern woman. We will be joined by Shaker scholars Dr. Carol Medlicott and Christian Goodwillie, who will be signing copies of their new book, This Chosen Pleasant Hill: Shakers of the Kentucky Bluegrass Tickets, now available for purchase.
Friday, March 24 | 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
