Eliza Jumel: From The Bottom of The Top

Addolorata Village provides you with enriching and entertaining educational opportunities right outside your door. “Rags to riches” stories are common in American history, but this one is exceptional. Eliza Jumel was born in a brothel in the year that the Revolutionary War broke out. She went on to become one of the richest women in New York City. She made a killing in business, befriended Napoleon Bonaparte and married — and divorced — Aaron Burr. Her remarkable rise shows just how much was possible in the young United States. Join us, along with Harper College, for our Fall 2019 courses and discover the possibilities waiting for you at Addolorata Villa.

All programs are free of charge. Seating is limited.
