WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE THIS EVENT, please check back on our website or social media channels for an update on future Spring events. Join the Napa County Historical Society and the League of Women Voters in a special edition of Friday Night Storytelling: Echoes of Women.

This event takes place during Women’s History Month and both the Historical Society and the League will highlight Napa Valley women and the history of the old Napa League of Women Voters.

Our collaboration has been made possible by research conducted in the NCHS archives on the Napa League from 1947 to 1993 and the resources and staff in pulling together the story of the old Napa League.
