The Upton House is named after its famous resident Harriet Taylor Upton.
Upton was Warren’s national 20th-century celebrity who took an active part in the Suffrage Movement activities, one of which was as the Treasurer of the National Women’s Suffrage Association.
She received the house as a gift from her father and lived there for 60 years with her husband.
Upton became involved in the Suffrage Movement after escorting her father to WDC for his position as a congressman. She became friends with Susan B. Anthony and served in several key positions in the movement.
Many celebrities visited the Upton House, and it was the center of the National American Woman Suffrage Association in 1903-1905.
The historic place was saved for demolition by the local people of Warren, and it is now a museum dedicated to the Suffrage Movement and the life of Harriet Taylor Upton.
The house is managed by the Harriet Taylor Upton Association, which also maintains the gardens and the nearby Women’s Park. It can be visited by appointment.
Special events are held occasionally, and the house is available for private events.
