NEW YORK (AP) — The New-York Historical Society is creating a center that will focus on women who played a crucial role in American history at the turn of the 20th century.

The Study of Women’s History is slated to open in December 2016.

It will be located in the renovated Henry Luce III Center for the Study of American Culture. That’s on the fourth floor of the Central Park West building.

The women’s center will include permanent and temporary exhibition space and a 1,750-square-foot theater.

A permanent exhibition will tell the story of the so-called “Tiffany Girls.” They were the women who designed and constructed most of the iconic stained-glass lamps. The exhibition will be drawn from the museum’s vast Tiffany collection.
