Guest Speaker: Randall “ Randy” Modesitt

“The Henderson Women” Five generations lived on this estate. We hear so much about the Henderson men. What about the women who played important roles in the early settlement of Wood County and West Virginia? Randy will share with us his passion and knowledge about the lives of these early women in a home that saw the years of our early country’s growth and development.
