Webinar series continues Constable Chronicles

Posted

CONSTABLEVILLE — The Constable Hall Association and the Tug Hill Commission have joined forces to present a pair of Constable Chronicles webinars.

The first webinar, by Andrew Reid, educator and Constable Hall Association board member, is on Tuesday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m.

The presentation, “Anna Constable: From Socialist to Suffragist,” will follow the life of Anna Constable from her family’s connection to Constable Hall, her years in the upper circles of New York City social life, and her development into an influential suffragist in the United States during the final push for equal voting rights for women.

Her efforts have helped not just women gain the right to vote but also have been hailed as helping local governments and citizens shape the future of the Tug Hill region.

Registration for the webinars is available at www.tughill.org/upcoming-workshops/.

A second webinar will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 7, at 7 p.m.

An online audience is welcome to join Martha Constable Murray and Peter Hayes from the Constable Hall Association for “William Constable, Spirit of the North Country.”

At one time, William Constable owned most of the North Country, yet never
visited it–he hangs over our early history like a ghost, event organizers say, adding that almost every person involved in the original development connects to him in some way.

“Join us to learn how he and his interesting wife set in motion our community - and how his spirit of adventure was picked up by the next generation,” event organizers added.
