Life of New Richmond resident celebrated

The life of New Richmond historical resident Louisa Picquet was celebrated at the Ross Gowdy House Museum Aug. 28.

Attended by about 30 interested residents, the program featured a presentation on the life and times of Louisa Picquet by Proctor and Gamble research executive and genealogist Katherine Flynn.

The President of Historic New Richmond, Bob Lees, said that the program featuring Lynn was a wonderful opportunity for the community to hear about a New Richmond resident who “touched the nation’s soul, and is doing so again today.”

“We were presented with a story of the life and times of a truly great New Richmond resident,” Lees said. “An incredible story about an incredible American woman.”
