Headquarters of the Suffrage Movement

A Suffragist and much more
Susan B. Anthony lived in this house for the forty most active years of her life. This house was the site of her famous arrest for voting in 1872 and her death in 1906. It served as the headquarters for the National Woman Suffrage Association and the Rochester Political Equality Club.

Anthony founded the National Woman Suffrage Association and campaigned to amend the U.S. Constitution to secure women's right to vote.

Anthony spoke, organized, petitioned, and faced physical danger in the campaign to end slavery in the United States, often joining her lifelong friend, Frederick Douglass.

Education Reformer
Anthony called for equal educational opportunities for all and pressed schools, colleges, and universities to open their doors to women and former slaves.

Labor Activist
Anthony published The Revolution, a women's rights newspaper that promoted unions for women workers and equal pay for equal work.

Arrested for Voting!
Come into the front parlor where I was arrested by a U.S. Marshal for voting in the 1872 presidential election. I voted because I believed women had that right under the 14th amendment.
