Celebrate 100 Years of Women’s Voices & Votes in NYS

The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House in Rochester, NY, was the home of the legendary American civil rights leader during the most politically active years of her life, and the site of her famous arrest for voting in 1872.

The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House shares the story of Susan B. Anthony’s lifelong struggle to gain voting rights for women and equal rights for all. We keep her vision alive and relevant by preserving and sharing Anthony’s National Historic Landmark home and telling her story through tours, publications, interpretive programs, and our website. Learn more about this great reformer and our programs at susanb.org.

The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House is a sponsor of VoteTilla, a celebration of the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote in New York State. VoteTilla takes place on the Erie Canal this July. With a core of five canal boats, VoteTilla departs Seneca Falls on July 17 and heads to Rochester with celebrations and reenactments at along the way. The celebration continues as Rochester becomes Suffragist City for the weekend of July 21–23, with concerts, fireworks, a picnic, and a parade with the theme, “Because of Women Like Her.”
