This is Savannah's only Women's History Tour conducted inside of the city's only true Victorian cemetery. Buried within are some of the most colorful, adventurous and influential women of the 19th century. From Girl Scout Founder, Juliette Low, Florence Martus aka The Waving Girl to Jewish Civil Wartime Nurse Phoebe Pember or the loving benfactress muse of poet-painter, Kahlil Gibran, Mrs. Mary Haskell-Minis, its nothing short of remarkable that so much female empowered women ended up in one cemetery!


Before feminism was even a concept, Savannah women were leading fascinating, daring lives of creativity and innovation that influenced and sometimes shook the world! Yet like so many accomplishments of women in The South, they either made the history pages or went lost to them. Its uncanny that so many of these fabulous women ended up in one Savannah cemetery!
Juliette Gordon-Low, Founder of The Girl Scouts of The USA
Florence Martus, aka, "The Waving Girl"
Nina Pape, Educator & Founder of The Pape School
Eugenia Phillips, Banished Civil War Spy
Mary Marshall, Philanthropist & Builder

Tour discussions will also include the many roles of women in Victorian Society, the very particular traditions around funerals, along with social organizations like The Order of The Eastern Star, The Daughters of Rebekkah and other women's movements.
