11:00 AM - One Step More: Oberlin Women's History Walking Tour
History Walk begins at the southeast corner of Tappan Square (Corner of Main Street and College Street).

In 1834, John J. Shipherd pledged Oberlin’s commitment to “the elevation of female character” through education. Little did he know, there was dynamite in that promise, and women carried the matches. This 75-minute walking tour explores how powerful women like Lucy Stone, Antoinette Brown Blackwell, Anna Julia Cooper, and Lucy Stanton Day made good on Shipherd’s promise and shaped what it meant to be a woman in Oberlin and beyond. This tour was developed by alumna Jen Graham (OC Class of 2012).

$6 per adult, free for students. Space is limited, reservation recommended. Register on-line or call 440.774.1700.
