Homes of the First Ladies

Details

The back cover of this book reads: As America's First Ladies become better known and their influence and accomplishments become more widely recognized, interest in and fascination with the women themselves increases. (This book) is a guide to places that commemorate and interpret the lives and legacies of these First Ladies. This book provides short biographical sketches of all the First Ladies, including those wives of presidents who died before their husbands were elected to that high office, then identifies, describes, and provides access information to some fifty-eight sites where wives of presidents once lived or are otherwise commemorated. Many of the sites described in this book are those that the women shared with their husbands, but increasingly homes and other structures in which these women lived during childhood or before marrying are being preserved in recognition of their historical value and the rich legacies of the First Ladies themselves.

Visits to the homes and museums described in this book will afford curious travelers the opportunity to experience some of the most intimate personal spaces, material possessions, and creativity that influenced, shaped, and gave voice to that small but very special group of women whose husbands happened to have been elected President of the United States.

This book is published in Granville, Ohio by The McDonald & Woodward Publishing Company.
