The Retreat was a nickname given to the home by Dr. Bethune. She often referenced it as her little retreat from the busyness of her life. This quarterly newsletter features historical Bethune hot topics, greetings from her home Mary McLeod Bethune Council House in Washington, DC (which is now a National Park Service site) and commentary from historians and museum professionals from around the nation. Check out these Issues of Mary McLeod Bethune's Legendary Retreat.
