Sarah Clarkson Ralston (1766-1820) founded this organization in 1817 and took an active role in its management until her death. Like many of her contemporaries, she used her personal resources and social position to establish social welfare, health, and educational institutions and services for those in need. This building is the Society's third and dates to 1886.
