 19th Century Adirondack Outdoorswomen

Wednesday September 12th noon – The roles women played in the exploration and settlement of the central Adirondacks have too often been minimized or overlooked. This talk presents stories of camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, homesteading, and hotel keeping by these unsung pioneers. I will discuss women’s camping trips during the 1850s to Raquette Lake by the Constable family, four women who managed sportsmen’s hotels along the Beaver River before 1890, and four early women professional outdoor guides. I will also describe women’s outdoor clothing of the era.

 Ed Pitts is a retired attorney from Syracuse with a lifelong interest in local history. He is the author of a number of articles on the history of upstate New York and the Adirondacks. He is currently writing a history of the Beaver River country.
