At the March 16th meeting, in honor of National Women's History Month, President Becky Shoulberg and incoming Vice President, Sue Soriano welcomed Vaneta Lorraine from Cranaleith Spiritual Center. The property has a long herstory as matriarchal Lenapes lived throughout the area. Mill-Rae, a Victorian home commissioned in 1890 and completed in 1891, was designed by architect Minerva Parker Nichols on behalf of Rachel Foster Avery, a national figure in the women’s suffrage movement and a close friend and ally of Susan B. Anthony. Anthony herself stayed at the home many times during her speaking tours around the country. This year (2017), Mill-Rae was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Currently the property has a conference center run by Sisters of Mercy. They offer diverse programs and workshops. Plus, they oversee a community garden and beehives.
