In observance of African-American Heritage Month, Sarah Jones will be presenting two relevant Saturday Frank Talks.

February 2nd, 1:30 p.m., she will highlight, Eliza Galloway, a woman who played a significant role in the history of the Frank House.  Mrs. Galloway was a freed slave who ran her own catering business in Kearney in the 1880s and 1890s.  She worked for the Franks as cook and was in charge of their staff.  At the time of her death in 1936, she was the only black person in Kearney.  

February 16th, 1:30 p.m., Sarah will present, “The Frank Men: Leaders of the Abolitionist Movement.” The Frank family men were long-time members of the anti-slavery societies in New York. The Honorable Augustus Frank, brother of G.W. Frank (builder of the Frank House), was a U.S. Congressman during the Civil War.

February is also the month of love and you can share a little Saturdays at the Frank House.
