Event Details

Date: May 16, 2023
Time: 5:30 pm
–7:00 pm

Mary Adeline Reynolds was a woman before her time. Born in 1860 on a farm in Greenwich, she spent 25 years living a privileged married life in New York City. Deserted by her husband when she was 50 years old, and with no business experience of any kind, she remade herself, by dint of innate intelligence, classic good taste and hard labor, into a successful real estate developer long before women were accepted in that field. Her story has not been told in Greenwich history, and with her 23 remaining houses either 100 years old or approaching it, this indomitable woman receives the recognition she deserves through this carefully researched book. 

Deborah Reynolds will share more about the research behind her work and illuminate the legacy of Mary Adeline Reynolds in a book talk followed by an opportunity for guests to engage in a question-and-answer session with the author. A wine and cheese reception will precede the talk.
