Overlea Celebrates Suffragette Centennial

Members of the Overlea community gathered Saturday to celebrate the 100th anniversary of a march for women's suffrage that passed through the neighborhood on the way from New York to Washington DC.

In case you missed it Saturday morning, Belair Road was closed for a celebration of an important part of Overlea's history.

Back in the winter of 1913, a group of suffragettes passed through the neighborhood on their way from New York to Washington D.C. on a march to try and secure the right for women to vote.

On Saturday, the Overlea Community Association organized an event to commemorate the work those women did.

Check out these photos and videos of the event posted by Overlea resident Steven Stout.
