Heritage Village Museum will be kicking off 2019 with the First Person Program Series running from February 7 through March 27. Come to the Village and learn about notable people of the past from the presenters! Each program begins at 7:00 p.m. and includes dessert.

Maria Longworth Nichols Storer was an artist, international business owner, and philanthropist. She is best known as the founder of the Rookwood Pottery Company. She envisioned Cincinnati as a center for arts and culture to rival the great cities of Europe and used her talents, wealth, and connections to realize that dream. She was an accomplished pianist and the first female founder of a music festival in the U.S. She had a hand in the creation of both Music Hall and the Cincinnati Art Museum. Maria was a visionary who left a lasting mark on the art, music, and culture of Cincinnati.

Her second husband’s political career took her to Washington D.C. where the Storer’s developed close friendships with Presidents McKinley, Roosevelt, and Taft. In this program, Maria returns to her beloved Cincinnati and reminisces about her life. Our Marketing Director, Bethany Jewell, will portray Maria Longworth Nichols Storer.
