Eminent Saratogian Katrina Trask (1853-2022), author, visionary, philanthropist, and founder of Yaddo, died 101 years ago this past January. We review Katrina Trask’s inspiring legacy, with a focus on the considerable role she played in the Town (City as of 1915) of Saratoga Springs.

Katrina Trask left us thousands of pages of both published and unpublished writing. Her words give us a remarkable window into her life and times, and into a legacy that is both full of
practical accomplishments and richly, deeply emotional. Costumed readers will interpret quotes from period documents. Readings from her works are interspersed with historical narrative and period newspaper accounts.

Mrs. Trask partnered with Mary Fuller in the founding of Wiawaka Holiday House (now Wiawaka Center for Women), which opened 120 years ago in 1903. This presentation offers background understanding of the remarkable woman who in 1908 would gift to Mary Fuller the Wiawaka property in exchange for “a bunch of May flowers.”
