In a shady corner of the Liberty Hall garden, there’s a stone bench with an inscription on the seat. Its age makes it hard to read, but the words represent an important aspect of the life of Margaretta Brown.
To Commemorate the organization in this garden

In addition to demonstrating her faith and commitment, Margaretta’s Sunday school work reflects women’s evolving roles in early America.
