Portsmouth has been home to some extraordinary women. Anne Hutchinson, Julia Ward Howe, Sarah J. Eddy and Emeline Eldredge are included in a display of Extraordinary Women of the East Bay that is currently at the Portsmouth Free Public Library. The Portsmouth Historical Society and the Portsmouth Free Public Library are presenting an event Tuesday at the library (6:30 to 7:30 PM) in conjunction with the exhibition. PHS member Gloria Schmidt will share what she has learned about the four Portsmouth women included in the exhibition. Check the Portsmouth Free Public Library website for signups and more information on the exhibition.
