From Frontierswoman to Flapper: Ohio's First Ladies
May 8, 2012 - April 26, 2013

It is remarkable that Ohio is the home of seven First Ladies who were born or lived in the state. Their lives spanned from the colonial days of the United States to ushering in the Jazz Age of the 20th Century.

Their generation of women ushered in the Jazz Age, Prohibition and the Roaring 20s – the "new breed" of flappers with new opportunities for women. These seven women were unique and lively individuals, and their husbands had the good fortune to meet and marry them in Ohio.
