Powell Liberty Historical Society

A window into the past of Powell and Liberty Township

Summary


Most of us are familiar, or at least have heard of, the Peter Rabbit children's books written by Beatrix Potter. However, how many of us know about the life of Beatrix beyond Peter Rabbit? Linda introduced us to this amazing woman who throughout the years was an author, illustrator, painter, business woman, farmer, naturalist and conservationist. She left a long and varied legacy. We thank Linda Foster for sharing with us the life of this most interesting and talented woman, Beatrix Potter.
