Crushed beetles, arsenic wafers, and Lydia Pinkham’s Compound were among the somewhat questionable substances used by women in the past. Some were beneficial and have stood the test of time, some useless, and some even deadly. Susan Hynes, a costumed living history interpreter, will give a colorful presentation on women’s health and beauty practices from bygone eras.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
