September is Women Creating A Legacy Month

September is Women Creating A Legacy Month

The Erie County Historical Society invites women to the Third Annual Women Creating a Legacy initiative at the Hagen History Center.  This year your support is needed now more than ever. 

With this special 100th anniversary, your donation will celebrate the achievements of women over the past 100 years.   

With your $100 donation or more, you will Make History with Us.  It’s more than a slogan.  It’s what we do every day at the Hagen History Center, and we invite you to join us in this mission.
