The Vann House Historic Site is hosting guest speaker Emily Baker to present the work of an unsung hero in women's history, Anna Rosina Kliest Gambold. For her commitment to her cause, her contributions to science, and her kindness to the Cherokee, Anna Gambold is one of the most interesting yet little recognized people in Georgia history. We invite you to join us for this rare opportunity to glimpse into history and into the work and life of Anna Gambold.

Emily Baker is the Programming Coordinator for Humanities, Medicine & Science at the Old Salem Museum & Gardens in Winston-Salem, NC. Her award winning research includes botanical studies from the 19th century, and she is unique for her insight on the relationship between the Moravians and Cherokee here at Springplace.

After the lecture, we will hold a brief viewing of the Historic Vann House.

Regular admission rates apply. Those with Friends of the Vann House memberships will receive free admission.
