Memorializing Motherhood

This exhibit cooresponds with the a major theme at the International Mother's Day Shrine and in national and international celebrations of Mother's Day: memorializing all mothers. The information and photos provided here cover a brief, and later more extended, history of the founding of Mother's Day by Anna Jarvis, other maternal movements that served to honor motherhood, and the international recognition of the holiday. We hope to also include a section on Appalachian Motherhood in the future.
