The ordinary life of an extraordinary woman.

An exhibit celebrating the life and personal history of Jane Jacobs, featuring rare and never-before-seen items from her estate.  

Step into the personal world of Jane Jacobs.   Experience the environments in which she worked and thought.  Find yourself in the spaces in which Jane exchanged ideas, hosted family gatherings, and entertained an amazing array of visitors.   Enjoy this unique opportunity to view items such as her typewriter, original manuscripts, objects collected by Jane for her personal “museum” and newly rediscovered photographs.   The exhibit will shed light on the personal interactions that were essential to her work, and highlight the many facets of her life, creating a three-dimensional portrait of the great writer.
