‘Remember Our Ladies’ exhibit highlights notable women in Wayne County history

The Museum of Wayne County History’s 2022 exhibit “Remember Our Ladies” is open to the public just in time for the tail-end of Women’s History Month.

The museum opened for the season on Tuesday March 15, 2022. The interactive “Remember Our Ladies” exhibit highlights notable women from Wayne County, according to museum manager Linda Stevenson’s write-up in Finger Lakes Times.


Featured women include Bessie Seeley, who became the first female Syracuse College of Law graduate in 1903; Katherine Wykle, the first female mayor of Clyde and first female head of a local government body in New York State; and a number of women who advocated for the passage of the 19th Amendment, which guaranteed women the right to vote.

You can visit the exhibit at the 21 Butternut St. museum in Lyons, which is open Tuesday – Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. More information can be found on the Wayne County Historical Society website or Facebook page.
