Women’s Heritage Trail

By Linda Tancs

New Jersey history boasts its fair share of influential women, like Annis Boudinot Stockton, a Colonial poet; Clara Barton, a Civil War nurse and the founder of the first public school in New Jersey; suffragist leader Alice Paul; and aviator and writer Anne Morrow Lindbergh.  Their contributions to society and those of many others are commemorated along the New Jersey Women’s Heritage Trail, a collection of nearly 100 sites across the state illustrating the role of women in American history.  Women’s heritage sites are being developed across the United States.  Check with your local historical society for a trail near you.
