This beautiful black, gray, and white scarf was from a fund raiser in Naples,  NY. Each table paid a fee towards the fire department & proceeds from what each table sold they kept. In this case,  the money went towards the Narcissa Prentiss House in Prattsburgh, NY – her birthplace. She was a pioneer,  missionary,  and teacher who traveled with her husband,  a minister,  from the East Coast to Oregon. Narcissa rode sidesaddled and one of the first two white women to cross the Continental Divide. The house would be interesting to see with artifacts, quilts, antique clothing, a room dedicated to the Pratt family, founders of Prattsburgh.
