One Step More: Oberlin Women's History Walk
History Walk begins at the Flagpole on Tappan Square at the intersection of Main and College Sts. in Downtown Oberlin.

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. Hear stories of powerful Oberlin women including Lucy Stone, Marianne Parker Dascomb, Adelia Field Johnston, Mary Church Terrell, and Lucy Stanton Day, and learn how they used Shipherd’s promise to shape what it meant to be a woman in Oberlin and in the United States.

This tour lasts approximately 75 minutes and covers approximately 1 walking mile. This tour ends at the Oberlin Heritage Center Museum Campus.
