Susan B. Anthony was an important advocate for human rights in the 1900s. She was part of the movement to end slavery. After the Civil War, she turned her attention to the recognition of women’s rights, including the right to vote. Anthony traveled the country to give speeches, circulate petitions, and organize local women’s rights organizations.

She did much of her writing and organizing from this red brick house in Rochester, New York. For forty years, this simple brick house served as her private home and political headquarters. She lived here from 1866 until her death in 1906. The home was recognized for its historical significance when it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1965.
