Eliza Archard Conner: Author, Scholar, Women's Rights Activist
Join us Monday, January 9, to learn about 19th century woman’s rights
journalist Eliza Archard Conner. Born in New Richmond, Ohio, Eliza
attended two very progressive 19th century Ohio schools. First, the
Clermont Academy, which was one of the first schools to accept any
student regardless of race or sex. Later, when she decided she could not
follow one simple rule (being quiet during study hours), she left and
attended Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Unsurprisingly, she
went on to become a successful, outspoken women’s rights journalist. She
wrote over 750 articles that were published throughout the
United States. This program will take place at the Delhi Park Lodge at
7pm. Hope to see you there!

Delhi in Bloom
The Language of Flowers
Visit the Delhi Historical Society as we tell the history of Delhi Township through its floriculture with the opening of two new exhibits.
- Delhi in Bloom explains how grapes, growers and greenhouses shaped the history and development of Delhi Township.
- The Language of Flowers explores the use of flowers as symbols over the centuries, the Victorians’ enchantment with flowers and a “flower language,” and how that helped to fuel a demand for blooms that gave rise to Delhi’s many greenhouses.
The exhibits include educational panels, flower displays, images of many Delhi greenhouse owners and families, and an interactive craft for all ages.
Delhi Township will celebrate its bicentennial beginning in 2016. The Delhi Historical Society launches the beginning of its celebrations with these exhibits exploring Delhi’s early history as a wine-growing region and its transformation into “the Floral Paradise of Ohio.”
