Lorraine Duvall is researching Intentional Communities in the Adirondacks. Her first project is to tell the story of a women's collective in Athol, New York. In the fall of 1974, seven women pooled their resources and bought a 23-acre Adirondack mountain resort in the town of Thurman. They called themselves A Woman's Place. Contact Lorraine if you were a member of the collective and would like to share your story. Or if you were a neighbor at the time and remember what it was like to have a women’s collective in your town.
