Wreath-Laying Ceremony Honoring Armenia & Nathaniel White

  • Blossom Hill Cemetery Sec. L-32-40 #13, 207 North State Street Concord, NH 03301 USA (map)

This Election Day, join the Junior American Citizens Club as we honor the memory of two of New Hampshire's most influential suffragists: Armenia Smith Aldrich White and her husband, Nathaniel White. Armenia and Nathaniel were American suffragists, philanthropists, and social reformers who called Concord, NH, home. Armenia was the pioneer of the woman suffrage movement in New Hampshire and was elected the first president of the New Hampshire Woman Suffrage Association, a position that she held for 27 years. The Whites had seven children together.

The Junior American Citizens Club invites you to help us honor their legacies with a wreath-laying ceremony at their mausoleum as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of New Hampshire’s ratification of the 19th Amendment.

Dress for the weather as we will be outside! Please vote before you come and bring your “I Voted” sticker with you as we will create a special wreath with them. Organizations and individuals are welcome to place wreaths; please let us know if you plan to do so!
