What does it mean to “have it all?” Through the lives of five women who lived at the Old Manse between 1775 and 1905, we will learn how their desire to manage both a households and intellectual and artistic pursuits set them apart from other women of their time. Mary Moody Emerson witnessed the beginnings of the American Revolution from the Old Manse, and her nephew and protegee, Ralph Waldo Emerson, would start a revolution in literature in the 1830s. Sarah Alden Bradford Ripley was an accomplished scholar and botanist, who prepared students for Harvard. Sophia Hawthorne and Theodora Thayer were both noted artists, and Phebe Ripley an accomplished piano teacher. Through each of their lives, we will see where they took risks to pursue their artistic or intellectual passions, the personal reward, and sometimes disastrous personal consequences they faced. Their lives remind us that each of us that we can make our lives rewarding and meaningful based on the choices that we make.
