What can a recipe book reveal to us about the women who wrote the recipes?

Local researcher Cheryl McCann has unearthed the stories of the ladies of Liberty Missouri’s Economy Cook Books, which were printed in 1880 and 1903. In the original cookbooks, the women were typically identified under their husband’s name with no information about them personally. Through careful research, these women were identified and their stories have been told in a new cookbook: Stirring Up History: The Meals, Memoirs, and Memories of Our Ladies of Clay County.

Join us on July 22 as Cheryl McCann tells us about some of these women, and even shares some food baked from the historic recipes included in the book. After her presentation, Savannah Lore, weekend manager of the Alexander Majors House, will discuss what the lives of the women who lived in the Majors House might have been like.

Admission: $5 Free for members of the Wornall/Majors House Museums. Please RSVP at
