Women's suffrage was a national issue, but it took women all over the country, including in small towns, to make it a reality. Meyersdale Public Library Archivist Jennifer Hurl visits the Springs Historical Society to offer a presentation about local suffragists, inspired by discoveries during a historical newspaper digitization project.
