Ramsey After Dark: Angels and Madams
265 S. Exchange St
Saint Paul, MN 55102
About This Event
In 1881, residents of St. Paul's fashionable Irvine Park neighborhood formed a committee to rid their district of prostitution and vice. St. Paul's nearby not-so-hidden red-light district was a source of concern for residents, reformers and city officials alike. Using newspaper accounts and court records, we’ll explore the secrets of the capital city. Were madams like Nina Clifford and Maggie Morse simply running businesses or, as reformers claimed, ruining lives as well as the soul of a city?
This program is recommended for ages 18 and up.
