The new illustrated biography, Marjorie Merriweather Post: The Life Behind the Luxury is now available. Visit the shop to purchase your copy now.
As we celebrate the one-hundredth anniversary of the nineteenth amendment and the right to vote for American women, Hillwood honers one of the most interesting and influential women of the twentieth with the first illustrated biography of its founder. As owner of Postum Cereal Company, and later director of General Foods Corporation—one of the few women to hold such a position—Post was a pioneer in a male-dominated world. In this new biography, richly illustrated with many never before seen historical photographs, archival documents, and other ephemera reflecting an extraordinary life, readers will find an inspirational story about a strong, independent woman who made opportunities for herself like few women of her time.
The shop also features delightful gifts as well as apparel and jewelry reflecting the luxurious lifestyle of Marjorie Merriweather Post and the beauty that pervades Hillwood, especially during the holiday season!
Shop hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
