Welcome to Portfolio 1

     When Women Use Their Power is our 10-month virtual exhibit featuring  the accomplishments of outstanding women who worked in the four-county region of Culpeper, Orange, Madison and Rappahannock.  One woman will be highlighted each month from March through December, 2021.  When each feature ends, we will post the video in this Portfolio.

Murcelle Allen Coleman. 

The second feature, April, was consummate researcher and interpreter of Culpeper history, Angela Jeffers Chapman.

The third feature, May, was proprietor of the Horseshoe Inn in the town of Sperryville, Rappahannock County, Minnie E. Howard Butler.
