Bernadette Rogoff, author and Director of Collections at MCHA, has been curating Monmouth County history for three decades. Her impressive career has established her as one of the premier historians of Monmouth County history, with a staggering breadth of knowledge that is matched only by her natural storytelling ability.  

There is no "one way" to classify the areas that Bernadette specializes in - from portraiture to 18th and 19th-century textile identification and preservation to the most unique and obscure objects in our collection - you'll have to take our word for it! This lecture will spotlight the Freehold Young Ladies Seminary, one of the most prestigious female educational institutions on the eastern seaboard, as well as give a glimpse into the lives of some of the impressive young ladies who attended using primary source documents and objects from MCHA's collection.



Co-Sponsored by the Monmouth County Library

Please join us on the third Thursday of each month at 7 pm for Zoom lectures given by Monmouth County's most interesting and well-respected historians! You'll have the chance to engage in a Q&A at the end.
