For Our Volunteers: Confessions of a Southern Belle...Musings of Miss Carrie Smith

Modenia Kramer from the Dudley House Speakers Bureau will share the story of Miss Carrie Smith, who married into Ventura's Dudley family. 

The Dudley House, is an 1892 Victorian farm house located at 197 N. Ashwood Avenue, the corner of Ashwood and Loma Vista in Ventura.

The house has been an ongoing preservation activity since 1977. Owned by the city since 1977, SBH was formed and took over the project when proposition 13 prevented the city from continuing to fund the project. The interior is complete with much of the original Dudley furniture returning to the house in 2006 from the estate of the late Johanna Dudley Overby.  The house is a living history museum reflecting the life of the Dudley family.
