Stevie Jr. Plays PianoLushington: The Life of Stephen Jr.

Runs May 24 - December 31

The Leacocks left behind only one son, Stephen Jr. Though perhaps not as influential as his famous father, the sometimes tragic story of “Young Steve” sheds a light on an often overlooked part of the family legacy.


“I Tell Myself to Myself”: Anne Lister and her DiariesAnne Lister's Code

Runs May 24 – December 31

Anne Lister (1791-1840) kept detailed diaries, with approximately one-sixth of the combined 5 million words written in an elaborate code not deciphered until the 1930s. With assistance from the West Yorkshire Archive Service, the Leacock Museum is proud to present a glimpse into the fascinating and sometimes scandalous life of the famous “first modern lesbian”.
