The Milton Historical Society, 210 Union St., will host an evening presentation by researcher Phil Martin about “The Ladies of Milton” at 7 p.m. March 8.

Attendees will learn about Milton’s premiere women. Lillian Cade, 1855-1953, lived to the age of 98. She appeared in the Wilmington morning and evening dailies, the Philadelphia Times, the Denton Journal and the Milford Chronicle’s Milton Letter, as she was a local leader of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union of Delaware in the late 19th and early 20th century. Daughter of Capt. John Cade, she was listed in the U.S. Census of 1900 as living with her aunt, Mary Wiltbank, also a member of the WCTU. Her life and the life of four others will be discussed in this lecture.

Admission is $5; free for Historical Society members.
