Behind the Butler’s Pantry – Olana and the Lives of Irish Servants in the Hudson Valley
November 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$5
Join Elizabeth in a virtual conversation about the lives of Irish American servants at Frederic Church’s Olana. This conversation will use Church’s history of employing Irish immigrants as a framework to consider the network of Irish domestic servants that existed in the region during the 19th century. Through their dialogue, the speakers will consider how Olana functioned as both a workplace and a home for Irish immigrants and take a broader look at the lives of domestic servants and the challenges they faced during this period. This event is organized by Olana. Tickets are $5–more information and tickets available here.
