  • Description

    Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum is located at the original family homestead of the Anthonys’ who lived there between 1818-1895. In this historic house Susan B. Anthony was born and raised. The homestead was purchased in 1998 by Linda McConchie and her daughters Lindsay and Elizabeth. They opened it occasionally to the pubic with a small exhibition. In 2006 Carol Crossed purchased the homestead, and it went under major restoration.
    The mission of the museum and education center is “to preserving the birthplace and raising public awareness of the wide-ranging legacy of the great social reformer, Susan B. Anthony, who was a pioneering feminist and suffragist as well as a noteworthy figure in the abolitionist, opposition to Restellism (opposition to abortion), and temperance movements of the 19th century.”
    The museum preserves the house as it was in the 18th century, giving a glimpse of the life of the people of these times. Among the rooms on display are the Kitchen and Hearth, which were the gathering places of the house, the Birthing Room where Anthony and her sisters were born, and the Legacy Room, where a timeline with key events in Anthony’s life can be seen as well as suffrage memorabilia. A visit to the house will shed light on Anthony’s path, becoming a social activist and reformer, and reveal more about her life story.
    The museum hosts seasonal community events as well as events in commemoration days like the birthday celebration of Susan B. Anthony on February 16th, International Women’s Day on March 8th and more.
