Cheney had a talent for organization and helped to found the Boston School of Design for Women, the New England Hospital for Women, the New England Woman's Club, and a horticultural school for women. Her husband died in 1856 and their only child died in 1882. Cheney's writings covered a broad range, from short stories to political theory and biography.
