Women Creating a Legacy

Women Creating a Legacy

Make History With Us and join in Erie’s downtown resurgence by sponsoring Women Creating A Legacy.

The Erie County Historical Society invites you to Make History with Us and become a sponsor of the Fourth Annual Women Creating a Legacy event at the Hagen History Center. 

Save the date of December 1, 2021, for this cocktail party fundraiser for women.  Enjoy Hors d’oeuvres and drinks while touring Erie’s newest museum.  

Join us from 5pm-8pm at the Watson-Curtze Mansion, 356 West 6th Street, and tour the mansion and see the new exhibits.

Your donation will help us sponsor a classroom in the Education Center to foster local children’s love of learning Erie’s history and help develop critical thinking skills.  In previous years, Women Creating a Legacy donors have sponsored another classroom and partially sponsored Winifred Watson’s bedroom.

But why are the educational efforts at the ECHS important?

Because it’s OUR history.  It’s YOUR story.   It’s the story of Erie County. The story of immigrants.  The story of farming.  The story of industrialization.  The story of advancements and setbacks.  The story of war and peace. The story of living on a great lake.  It’s the story of our past, our present and, yes, our future. 

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
