Women Creating a Legacy

Women Creating a Legacy

Support projects for children by joining Women Creating A Legacy.


Hagen History Center, and honorary chairperson Leah Murphy, invite you to make history with us by supporting the Fifth Annual Women Creating a Legacy event. 

Save the date of June 13, 2023, for this cocktail party fundraiser for women.  Enjoy Hors d’oeuvres and drinks while touring Erie’s newest museum.  

We’ve moved the event to June to enjoy the beautiful campus and summertime in Erie.

Join us from 5pm-8pm at the Watson-Curtze Mansion, 356 West 6th Street. Enjoy the party, tour the three exhibit buildings, and see the 11 new professionally designed exhibits.

Since the July 2021 re-opening of the Hagen History Center, guests have been amazed with restored historic homes, a new building, and new interactive exhibits.

Add to that Frank Lloyd Wright’s original San Francisco office and his Butterfly Wing Bridge model, and the community has been buzzing!

This women’s event has raised over $70,000 in the past 4 years, and past donations have sponsored a classroom in the Education Center and Winifred Watson’s Bedroom in the Watson-Curtze Mansion.  Both rooms are used for the education of children.    Your donation this year will help us continue making history that inspires with virtual reality/interactive exhibits for children of all ages.

Join us now and help us tell this wonderfully rich story as we continue to make history together. Become a Woman Creating a Legacy. 

In addition, the Hagen History Center is part of Erie’s downtown resurgence.  Where else can you make history AND resurge a city with your donation?

Thank you for your consideration and for making history with us!  If you’d like additional information, contact us at 814-454-1813 x 34 or gcicchetti@eriehistory.org.
