May is Preservation Month

In the hamlet where I live on Long Island, the Yaphank Historical Society has taken on the mission of preserving 4 of the 19th century houses that tell the story of the people who lived in them.
One of them is the Mary L. Booth House, birthplace and girlhood home of noted author, editor, translator, suffragist, and abolitionist  Mary Louise Booth. It is an important story to tell and I am working on a book about her life  and her accomplishments - preserving her home and opening it to the public is the first step in sharing the story of this amazing woman.

love gathering flowers from the garden at this time of year, and filling the house with them....
