Hello, friends. Recently, I visited Phillips Free Library in Homer, NY to talk about history and writing. It was delightful.
Did you know that Homer, NY is the birthplace of Amelia Bloomer?
Her childhood home is on North Main Street, just a couple of minutes’ walk from the Town Hall. It looks like it’s been converted into four apartments (see the four Victorian-era mailboxes, two on either side of the front door).
I was quite sorry not to find more information about Amelia Bloomer in town, so I did a little reading for my own satisfaction. My post about her is up now, at The History Girls. Hope you enjoy it!
