1:00 PM - One Step More: Oberlin Women's History Walking Tour (FREE)
This history walk begins at the southeast corner of Tappan Square near the flagpole (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 is being offered for free in honor of Women's History Month. Space is limited; reservations are required. All participants must wear a facial mask and observe social distancing recommendations. Register on-line or call 440-774-1700. Tour may be cancelled if there is inclement weather at the tour start time.
