Women of Fayetteville Collection

A collection of broadly based images of Fayetteville women and their activities dating back to the 19th century. Original photos are housed in the files of the Local History Room in the library. The collection documents their association with social, civic and academic organizations and institutions. Of particular note are digitized documents from the archive of the Coterie, a women’s study group established in 1885 that continues to meet regularly to this day. A goal of the library’s overall digitization project is to expand this particular collection to pay tribute to the wide range of women whose drive and energy fueled the development of their community.
