Beverly Wellford Rowland
Growing up in Pennsylvania and Delaware, Beverley Wellford Rowland was graduated from Tower Hill School in Wilmington, Delaware, Smith College (BA), Northampton, Massachusetts and Columbia University Teachers College (MEd), New York, New York.
She taught at the primary and secondary levels approximately ten years in Delaware and New York City before retiring from teaching to raise her two children. She resides in Wilmington, Delaware and has served on a number of non-profit boards in Delaware and Virginia including two historic Virginia properties, Stratford Hall (The Robert E. Lee Memorial Foundation) and The Menokin Foundation, and managed her own business, Stitches, in Wilmington, Delaware.
Her family’s historic home in Virginia, Sabine Hall, built in 1738, peaked her interest from childhood in all historic properties and eventually led to the restoration, with her husband Walter, of their 1780 National Registered Cherry Walk home in Essex County, Virginia.
She served as President of The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in The State of Delaware from 1990—1994.
