Women's History Month: Honoring Anne Hutchinson

The Hutchinson River Parkway is named after Anne Hutchinson, a woman whose intelligence and conviction made her an exile in life but a model of perseverance for generations after her death.



Anne Hutchinson was born in England and immigrated to Boston with her husband.



According to the New York City Parks website, Hutchinson was a nurse who cared for women in the Boston area. 

 

She also held meetings for women to discuss theology and religion, which landed her in trouble. 



She taught about a direct relationship with God, which went against the religious practices. 



Hutchinson would later be exiled for her different views and eventually moved to Pelham Bay. 



She died in 1643.
