March marks Women’s History Month, and there are a number of ways to celebrate through travel. Here are just a few ideas to honor women in history.
In the 1800s, Nantucket was home to more history-making woman than most other places in the country. To honor some of those inspiring females, each of four new suites at the Jared Coffin House are named after influential women from the area, including Anna Gardner, instrumental in calling an anti-slavery meeting in 1841; and Lucretia Coffin Mott, who participated in the country’s first meeting about women’s rights in 1848. Maria Mitchell was the first professional female astronomer and opened a school in 1835 that was desegregated. Mary Coffin Starbuck brought Quakerism to Nantucket and ran a trading post. Book your stay now for when Jared Coffin House re-opens for the season in April; rates begin at $155 per night.
