Emmmitsburg has been home to the Daughters of Charity since the days of Elizabeth Ann Seton. The drawing seen here was done by Simon Brute, spiritual director to Mother Seton. The Brute sketch is one of over 40 images depicting the history of the town of Emmitsburg which can be seen in our upcoming exhibit, ‘Our Town’: A Pictorial History of Emmitsburg and the Daughters of Charity Through the Years. The exhibit features images from the Provincial Archives, the Emmitsburg Area Historical Society, and the Library of Congress.
