2022 Winter Showcase Series: Marie Howland: Remembered for What She Has Done

As part of the 2022 Winter Showcase Series presented by Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism, please join us for this presentation on updates from the Fairhope Museum of History.

Marie Stevens Case Howland (1836-1921) was the founder of the Fairhope Public Library in 1900. In the decades before she became a Fairhoper, Mrs. Howland was an important voice in the nineteenth-century feminist and social reform movement. She was a writer, teacher, bohemian and utopian socialist who lived and worked in cooperative communities in New York, France, Mexico and finally in the Single Tax Colony in Fairhope, Alabama. The hymn “Only Remembered for What We Have Done” was appropriately sung at her funeral, and is referenced in the title as a nod to Marie Howland’s purposeful, spirited and fascinating life.
