Who was Julia Belden Lockwood? Born in the late 1800's, into a prominent family at a time when gender specific roles dictated behavior and women had few liberties. Julia could not vote or work in male dominated fields. How did Julia, a beautiful, highly educated and well to do woman, shape her life to become a modern day woman and one of Norwalks and Pasadenas best known philanthropist?
Join us for this insightful lecture celebrating Julia's life in the Museum she and her cousin, Manice de Forest Lockwood, donated the funds to build. The Museum honors their ancestors, as well as, preserving Norwalk's rich history.
