Ipswich Female Seminary Reexamined

The Ipswich Female Seminary was an early example of higher education for women.  Led by Zilpah Grant and Mary Lyon in its early years, the curriculum included science, mathetmatics and interpretive reading.  Students developed a clear vision that broadened their understanding of the increasingly complicated world.  Graduates taught in diverse areas of the country and abroad.  This research will become part of the permanent collection.     


The Exhibit is open to visitors on Saturdays and Sundays, 1:00-4:00, February – April.
