When Dolley Madison became First Lady in 1809, no one realized the political and fashion influence the wife of the president could have. Born in 1768, 2018 marks the 250th anniversary of Mrs. Madison’s birth! Celebrate this occasion with the Norwell Historical Society and learn about this influential First Lady who used her charm and status to become a force for women’s rights, facilitate political connections for her husband, and transform the White House into an exquisite national home.
