Unsinkable Molly Brown with Mary Jane Bradbury
Beginning on Sunday, January 13th, at 2:00pm and continuing every other week through February 24th, the Museum at Central School in Kalispell presents four unique and engaging speakers.
The 17th annual series features programs on the Lewis and Clark Expedition; the 1917 Speculator-Granite Mountain mining disaster; Mary Fields, the first female African American Star Route mail carrier in the United States; and the truth behind the "Unsinkable" Molly Brown.
Returning to the Series for the fifth consecutive year, living history performer Mary Jane Bradbury will explore the legend that formed around “The Unsinkable Molly” Brown, a social reformer in the early twentieth century. But from her name on down, Brown’s life was largely written by the press, obscuring a remarkable woman who was quite different than the popular story.
Tickets for Museum members are $20 for the series of all four, or $6 for any single event. General public tickets are $30 for the series, or $9 for any single event. Tickets are available at the Museum, Monday through Friday, 10 to 5, or at the door before each event. Last year's Series broke attendance records, so advanced purchase is recommended.
