Riley County Women in History

 
  Riley County Genealogical Society and Riley County Historical Museum have collaborated on a project about the history of several local women.   View their stories here. 
This coloring book was published by the Riley County Genealogical Society and the Riley County Historical Society in 2020 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex.  It features twenty women, each with a connection to Riley County, who made a notable contribution to our history.

Download our coloring book of  drawings and information about 20 women who impacted Riley County here.
