Meet the Burlington County Woman of the Week, Louise Calloway!

She put her entire collection in storage until the she found a new home with the help of the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Today, she is the Curator of the Underground Railroad Museum at Smithville Park. Louse is a very wise and dedicated 90-year-old story teller. She had a long career as a Social Worker and even taught College in Africa. She was honored by the NAACP in 2011 with the Distinguished Educators Award. She is a Burlington County treasure.
