Help create the Suffragist Grove at Hartwood Acres!
In August 2020, a tulip poplar was the first tree to be planted as part of a future grove at Hartwood Acres to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution giving some women the right to vote in 1920.
Suffragists, women who fought for equal voting rights, were frequently imprisoned for their actions. After being released from prison, suffragists were often sent to retreat centers. One form of therapy encouraged the women to plant groves of trees as symbols of hope and future equality. Hartwood Acres was once part of the estate of John and Mary Flinn Lawrence. Mrs. Lawrence, a dedicated suffragist, sold the mansion and grounds to Allegheny County in 1969 to create the 9th county park. All donations will support the creation of a Suffragist Grove on the mansion grounds.
