The New Berlin Historical Society will host a tour of the girlhood home and church of Theodora Winton Youmans beginning at 2 PM Saturday, August 17th. The house is located at 19765 W National Ave. in New Berlin's Historical Park. The historic church, home of a Freewill Baptist congregation in Theodora's youth, will also be open to visitors.
The tour is part of a national year-long celebration of the ratification of the 19th amendment which gave women the right to vote. Theodora was a local leader in this movement.
