First Ladies of Ohio Virtual Tour
This Ohio Statehouse tour will focus on sharing the amazing life stories of the eight presidential First Ladies whose husbands come from Ohio. As in-person tours are currently still suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this tour is a great opportunity to honor Women’s History Month and get an educational experience from the comfort and safety of your home.

Women’s History Month
Since 1987, the U.S. has dedicated March as Women’s History Month––a month in which we celebrate the numerous contributions women have made to this country. In addition to this tour that honors Ohio’s presidential First Ladies, the Ohio Statehouse offers many other opportunities to learn about women’s impact on US history. If you want to learn more, be sure to visit the Ladies’ Gallery, which honors the first female Ohio legislators who paved the way for women in government. Additionally, the Map Room features a special National Archives exhibit that marks the centennial of women’s suffrage.
