“Lottie and Liza,” a history presentation about two prominent Kearney women, will be the focus of the University of Nebraska at Kearney Frank House Program on Saturday, March 5.
Paula Nesiba, Frank House Americorps volunteer, will present the story of Lottie Gove Norton, a prominent business woman and philanthropist, and Eliza Galloway, a freed slave who served as the chief of staff for the Frank family.
“In recognition of Women’s History Month, the Frank House is presenting ‘Lottie and Liza,’ the story of two women and their roles in the infancy of Kearney,” said Sarah Jones, Frank House director.
“These two women symbolize the disparate types of people that were required for the formation of a strong prairie town,” Jones said.
The presentation will begin at 1:30 p.m. at the UNK Frank House, which is located on the UNK West Campus. The program is free and open to the public; however, donations to the Frank House are always accepted.
“Lottie and Liza” is one in a series of Saturdays at the Frank House presentations. For more information on Saturdays at the Frank House events visit: www.unk.edu/offices/frankhouse.
