Eleanor Roosevelt, as portrayed by Jessica Michna, shares with the audience her tragedies and triumphs. Born into the opulent wealth of America’s “Golden Age” she would grow from the shy, homely orphan into a confident, driven woman. Annealed by personal tragedy, she would emerge as a champion of civil rights, author, and stateswoman.
Co-sponsored by the DeForest Area Community & Senior Center, the DeForest Area Historical Society and DeForest Area Public Library.
PLEASE NOTE: This program will be presented via Zoom from Jessica Michna’s home. You are invited to participate via Zoom. Visit the websites of the Center or the Library to register.

The sign and Depot Agent’s message box on the east side of the restored DeForest Railroad Depot are exact reproductions. The original “Railroad Express Agency” sign is part of the society railroad artifacts collection. The Depot Agent’s message box was reconstructed using information provided in an archival photograph of the building taken during the 1930s.
