LexSeeHer Unveiling Day

May 15 @ 10:30 am - 7:00 pm

Artistic rendition of the LexSeeHer monument.

Artistic rendition of the LexSeeHer monument.Women have been instrumental in the pursuit of liberty from the years preceding the Battle of Lexington, throughout the Revolution, and beyond. LexSeeHer will formally dedicate the new “Something Is Being Done” monument designed by artist Meredith Bergmann on May 19th. Visitors can help commemorate important women whose stories have otherwise been lost to time. This is the first monument to recognize women’s economic, political, intellectual, social, and cultural contributions to the Lexington community, Commonwealth, country, and beyond.

The monument will help restore our collective memory of 18th century women, including Phebe Banister Burdoo, Cate Chester, Abigail Harrington, Margaret Tulip, Ruth Buckman, and Anna Harrington. In addition, the monument celebrates their literal and figurative daughters and granddaughters, and other women and girls who have continued blazing trails in the pursuit of liberty.

The LexSeeHer Chorus will perform. This event is part of LexSeeHer’s “First Look” series.

Due to limited space, tickets must be requested for this event, and there is currently a waitlist. If you receive a ticket from the waitlist, please anticipate standing or finding a place on the lawn nearby.

People who need accommodations should email [email protected] so the team can help.

The event is free, but donations in support of the monument are encouraged and may be made at lexseeher.com.

There will be a marketplace area for those interested in purchasing souvenirs of the monument and an activity table for children.
