An independent college preparatory school for young women in grades 7–12, located on Lowder Street in Dedham, Ursuline celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. But what is your knowledge of the property and its history?
Hear the fascinating stories that intertwined the lives of Isabella Stewart Gardner of Boston; one of the city’s wealthiest eligible bachelors and his new bride; a leading architect and an estate in Dedham; and a chauffeur, gardener, and lady’s maid. Scholar Sally Seufert Holmes will lead us through the history of the estate, where you will learn the backstory of "Federal Hill Farm" and how it evolved into the convent and Ursuline Academy of today, which continues its legacy of strong women. Not to be missed.
