Mrs. Day’s Ideal Baby Shoe Company

By February 21, 2024 Events

Wednesday, February 21st we will learn more about this groundbreaking business woman.

In 1906, Adra Day probably had no idea that the baby shoes she made would become so popular. Her entrepreneurship, leadership and understanding of women as valuable customers created a very successful business that lasted over 60 years.

Discover her story, how she established and operated her Danvers based business to become known throughout the world.

Sheila Cooke-Kayser, retired NPS Educator,  has researched Adra Day, her life and her business empire using primary sources from the Danvers Historical Society’s Collection and the Danvers Archival Center.

We are proud to participate in Mass Cultural Council’s Card to Culture program.

Speaker Series every 3rd Wednesday, 7pm.
Including a temporary exhibit of related artifacts from the Society’s collections.
