You go, girls! March is Women's History Month, so we thought we'd take a look at hospitality-related businesses in Morgan County that are women-owned and operated. It's been said that well-behaved women seldom make history. The popular quote, attributed to Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, isn't to say that women should behave badly, but to highlight the fact that women who have been remembered by history are those who take risks, show bravery and go after the things they desire. Morgan County is full of these women, currently making local history. While we also salute those women who hold public office, run non-profit organizations and help to teach our youth, today we'd like to shine a spotlight on women in business. These are women who inspire. Women who are entrepreneurs. Women who provide quality goods and services in our community. And there are plenty of them - in fact, in 2012, there were over 1,700 women-owned businesses located in Morgan County (we're willing to bet that number's gone up since then, but that's the last year for which we can find confirmed data).

While we obviously can’t list them all here, we’d like to highlight some of our favorite hospitality-related businesses in the area that are owned and operated by women. Their contribution to the fabric of this community and the uniqueness of our destination cannot be overstated. Thank you ladies, for helping to build a better community and a better destination here in Morgan County.
