In Their Own Words: Charlotte Quillen and Barbara Doughtery
Rehoboth Beach, DE
In celebration of Women's History month the Rehoboth Beach History Museum is going to present recorded oral histories of Rehoboth Beach women who made their mark on the town. These programs will be held at the Ann Hazzard Tent House at 17 Christian Street, and they consist of voice recordings done when the museum first started an oral history program. Every Saturday in March there will be a recording of another woman's oral history. These oral histories consist of audio only. There is limited seating so reservations are a must.
