Home of a Famous Suffragette
High on the list of interesting historic homes in upstate NY is the former home of women's rights activist and suffragette Susan B. Anthony. Site of her famed arrest in 1872, it was in this house's parlor that Anthony stood defiant after having voted in the political election. The current house museum is dedicated to sharing Anthony's lifelong struggle with those who visit by displaying artifacts from her life and telling her story through the exhibits in the house.
The visitors' center and museum shop are located next door where you can buy a one-of-a-kind souvenir or memento of your visit. If you have a group visiting why not try the Lunch and Tour, which includes an elegant lunch in the Carriage House after your guided tour. Open Tuesday through Sunday for tours and events.
