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 required. Register on-line or call 440.774.1700.

The Oberlin Heritage Center offers a number of options for guided tours and themed history walks this special weekend. Some tours are free, others range in fee from $3-$6 for adults. (Remember ALL tours are free for OHC members, college students and children under 18.) Drop-in visitors are welcome for the Oberlin Origins “Sneak Peek” tour while all other tours require advance registration.
