Upstairs, Downstairs: The Women of Newton’s Turn-of-the-Century Households
Discover the Newton Corner women who lived in the homes on Franklin, Park and Church Streets in 1900. Learn about the differences in the lives of live-in servants versus the mistresses of the homes (and their daughters). Using census data, marriage records, and local histories, Newton resident Anne Larner will paint a picture of life in 1900 for young women and enlighten us with stories of how life played out for selected women who lived upstairs and downstairs.
Meet in Farlow Park at the intersection of Church and Eldredge Streets, Newton 02458.
