Join the Butterworth Center & Deere-Wiman House for a digital presentation of ‘Mattie Poole: Moline Businesswoman’ this Thursday Aug 27 from 2 – 5 p.m.

Learn about entrepreneur Mattie Poole who demonstrated progressive marketing skills and considerable business acumen well ahead of her time. The Poole building she built on Moline’s 5th Avenue still stands today, evidence of the achievements of a woman in what was then a man’s world.

Gretchen Small, Director of Programs and Collections of Butterworth Center & Deere-Wiman House, will lead this virtual program, and will also show some of her own Mattie Poole porcelain pieces.
