Seneca Falls, NY--Women's Rights National Historical Park will celebrate the 97th birthday of the National Park Service on August 25, 2013 with a full day of interpretive programs.
The National Park Service was founded on August 25, 1916 when President Woodrow Wilson signed the Organic Act which provided funding for national parks to be preserved and protected for future generations. Women’s Rights National Historical Park was established in 1980 to commemorate the first Women’s Rights Convention held in 1848 and the continuing struggle for equal rights.
“For 97 years the National Park Service has proudly preserved and protected America’s national parks,” said Superintendent Ami Ghazala. “We invite you to visit our own national treasure here at Women’s Rights National Historical Park as we celebrate this special day,” added Superintendent Ghazala.
The park will be offering a full day of tours at the Wesleyan Chapel and the Elizabeth Cady Stanton House. Come visit these historic places and see the new digital display for kids in the Stanton House. You can also check out our new YouTube videos athttp://www.youtube.com/user/
