Women’s Heritage Trail
“I could have been a lawyer . . . but when I was growing up women had nothing.
All we could do was sit on the piano bench and sew or crochet!”
- Caroline Foster
Caroline Foster’s life is represented at Fosterfields Living Historical Farms as that of a well respected, independent woman managing the land. Because of her integral role defining Women and Domestic Life, Miss Foster is on the New Jersey Women’s Heritage Trail.
The New Jersey Women’s Heritage Trail highlights a collection of historic sites located around the state that represent the significant contributions women made to the history of our state. The Heritage Trail brings to life the vital role of women in New Jersey’s past and present.
