January 03, 2017

Join us at the Shaker Bar in Hudson, New York on Saturday, March 4 from 5:00 - 7:00PM to celebrate the 281st birthday of Shaker founder Mother Ann Lee (February 29, 1736 - September 8, 1784), and the beginning of Women's History Month, marked every year in March. Starting with Mother Ann Lee, influential Shaker women will be highlighted through images on the bar's walls, and guests will learn about our 2017 season exploring Shaker women and women's activism in recognition of the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in New York State. Museum members will receive one free complementary drink if they show their membership card. The bar is located at 119 Warren Street.
