Women of the Gilded Age Lecture - The Richest Woman in America

Thursday, February 1, 2018 @ 6:00pm
Henry Morrison Flagler Museum

Guided by the shrewd money-men in her family, Hetty Green grew up to be one of the most powerful financiers in American history. A businesswoman who transcended the expectations set upon women of her time, she was interested in a diverse array of money-making opportunities such as real estate, railroads, and financial loans. Even as a married woman and mother of two, Hetty Green remained financially independent and amassed a great fortune.

Despite yellow journalism's obsession with the portrayal of her quirky and meager lifestyle, her legacy is not wholly as The Witch of Wall Street but rather as the fiercely independent, Richest Woman in America.
