Hetty Green Trivia

September 24 @ 1:00 pm

New Bedford’s Hetty Green will share her extraordinary life as one of the first successful women on Wall Street. A century ago, Mrs. Green, a whaling heiress, and brilliant financier, was recognized as the wealthiest woman in America.

Hetty will meet the public at the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park on the last Sunday of June through September.

During the final event, the audience will answer trivia questions about Mrs. Green for a chance to win a famous Hetty nickel.

In Bellows Falls, Vermont, Hetty put a nickel in a piggy bank for children’s birthdays to encourage them to save money.
