April 18 5-7 PM: Patron Saints Brewery 4730 W. Bancroft #8, Toledo, OH 
April 20 Race Day 8 AM-8:45 AM 

The Florence Scott Libbey 419 Race celebrates Toledo history and the icons who helped make T- Town great!  Florence Scott Libbey,  along with her husband Edward Drummond Libbey,  founded the Toledo Museum of Art and their legacy continues on today. 

Florence Scott was the daughter and heiress of the wealthy Maurice and Mary Jane (Tallant) Scott and the granddaughter of Jesup Scott, founder of the University of Toledo. Florence married Edward Libbey in 1890, two years after he arrived in Toledo to relocate his glass company. In 1895 the Libbey's built their home in Toledo's fashionable Old West End at 2008 Scottwood.  In 1912 The Toledo Museum of Art was built on land donated by the Libbey's. 

Following Edward Libbey's death in 1925, Mrs Libbey remained an active contributor in her own right to Toledo culture. In the midst of the Great Depression,  Mrs Libbey funded the Peristyle Theater (1933) providing jobs for over 2,000 folks. Today the Toledo Museum of Art is free to all and regularly earns top state and national recognition. The Libbey home at 2008 Scottwood is managed by The Libbey House Foundation and is listed as a National Historic Landmark.

Florence, Edward Libbey,  and their infant son William, are buried in Toledo's Historic Woodlawn Cemetery & Arboretum along with many other Toledo greats.

 

419 Week is full of fun and diverse events brought to you by local organizations and small businesses. Marathon Month starts with The Crazy Long Training Run, leading to Florence's 5K and ends with Mercy Health Glass City Marathon Weekend!
