Louisville’s Street Railway Era: The Interurban
Tuesday, February 11
Louisville’s Street Railway Era: The Interurban  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Presented by Martin Biemer

For nearly eight decades, Louisville's street railway system was a key factor for the city's growth. Beginning in the late 1860s, the streetcar lines eventually stretched outside the city limits. Four men who experienced streetcar travel in their youth and were fascinated by it formed a small group of streetcar enthusiasts here in Louisville.  One of them, Ernest Gibson, had assembled a large collection of drawings, documents, and stories about the system. His collection was left to the University of Louisville when he died.

19th Amendment-Victory for the Suffragists
Tuesday, March 10
19th Amendment-Victory for the Suffragists  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Presented by League of Women Voters

A suffragist is one who believes in extending political suffrage (the right to vote), especially to women.  In August of this year, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment.  The battle for women’s voting rights was a long and arduous fight that pitted husband against wife, men against women.  Not all women supported this issue and there are many stories around the events which lead to women’s voting.  Today many people take for granted this right and our speaker will tell us about the long process to win the right of women to vote.  Focusing on the Louisville scene, our speaker will give us a better appreciation of this right.
