The Bigelow House is also hosting an Equality Day Commemoration on August 26, 2023 beginning at 11:30 am at the Bigelow House. August 26, 1920 was the day that the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution for women’s voting rights was signed into law. Costumed suffragists will be present along with the opportunity to register to vote, courtesy of the League of Women Voters of Thurston County.
We also will be remembering the 60th anniversary of the milestone March on Washington, a highlight of which was Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
