Happy International Women's Day! Here are a few photos of the Jordan Sisters, three strong women who were a driving force behind the 1950's Restoration of Historic St. Luke's Church. Based on the correspondences found in our archives, we know that Elizabeth Jordan in particular was smart, quick-witted, and oftentimes a bit sassy. All three sisters were involved in different capacities over the years, especially Elizabeth who served as the first secretary of Historic St. Luke's Restoration.
