We are pleased to announce that renovation work at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument which began in January 2022 is complete. Funded through the Great American Outdoors Act, the work included replacement of the existing standing seam metal roof, rehabilitation of historic windows and doors; upgrades to the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems; structural and plaster repairs; and renovation of the Florence Bayard Hilles Feminist Library, including installation of a new fire sprinkler system.

Museum collection items will be returned in stages. Even with a few empty spots, the exhibits still share a compelling story about the fight for women's right to vote and the ongoing struggle for equality.

The museum reopened to the public on Friday, August 25, 2023. Hours of operation are 10:00 am - 5:00 pm, Friday-Sunday.

Once home to the Secretary of the Treasury, then burned by the British in the War of 1812, this house became a hub for women's rights.
