Rummage sale will support Stahl-Conrad Homestead

Sept. 14, 2009

Eleanor Roosevelt will be our guest at the annual meeting of the Stahl-Conrad Homestead, 9724 W. Forest Home Ave., on Wednesday, September 23, 6:30 p.m. Her appearance, portrayed by performance artist Jessica Michna, will be held in the barn. The event is free and open to the public.

 

Roosevelt, a shy, homely orphan, grew into a confident, driven woman described by President Harry S. Truman as "The First Lady of the World." After thirteen years as First Lady, Roosevelt had hoped to retire and perhaps write her memoirs. By 1948, however, the world had changed dramatically and so had Eleanor. Michna shares with the audience Eleanor's tragedies and triumphs. Strengthened by personal tragedy, she emerged as a stateswoman, author, and champion of civil rights.

 

Road construction is making access via Forest Home Ave. difficult, but you can enter and park on the property via a driveway off 98th St.
