A National Historic Landmark and an educating center dedicated to the lifework and vision of Susan B. Anthony – a social reformer, an abolitionist, and women’s rights activist who was one of the suffragists leaders.
Anthony lived in this house for 40 years, and in this site she got arrested for voting in 1872.
The house was also the headquarters of the National American Woman Suffrage Association when Anthony was its president.
The 18th-century house preserves the history and lifestyle of that time.
You can see restored furnishing and original artifacts from the period, such as a horsehair couch, Anthony’s iconic alligator-skin purse, and a limited display of photographs.
You can participate in educational programs for children and adults and enjoy special events, including the annual celebration of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and the Susan B. Anthony Birthday.
