Hannah Freeman aka “Indian Hannah”: Chester County’s Early “Celebrity” Resident, the Myth and the Reality

March 7 at 7 pm

by Catherine Quillman

 

Spend an evening during Women’s History Month getting to know the real story of Hannah Freeman, the 19th century Native American popularly known as “Indian Hannah,” the “Last of Her Race.”   For a time, Hannah lived in the area known today as Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. Catherine Quillman’s illustrated lecture will also highlight William Penn’s influences on the local attitudes about Native Americans and how they may have changed the course of Hannah’s life.

 

No images survive of “Indian Hannah” but artist Adrian Martinez’s unfinished portrait here was based on his extensive research of the woman called an important “link” between the native Lenape and early settlers of Chester County.
