Colorado Women Lecture: Louise Sneed Hill

Louise Sneed Hill ruled over Denver’s high society for over four decades with Southern charm, societal tact, and a passion for success after arriving in Denver in 1893. Mrs. Hill created the group in Denver dubbed the “Sacred Thirty-Six.” Holding parties where animal dances, roller skating, and alcohol consumption were encouraged, Hill walked a fine line between the old and the new at a time when American society was unsure of its direction as it entered the first decades of the twentieth century. Join Shelby Carr for a lecture that unveils her research into the life of the often-misunderstood Louise Sneed Hill.
