(Women's Rights National Historical Park)
Other people lived in the house at 14 E. Williams Street between 1856 and 1875. For most of the next 100 years it served as the parsonage for the Baptist Church that was built next door, though other people lived there at various times as well. In 1985, the National Park Service purchased the house in order to make it part of the Women's Rights National Historical Park, which includes property in both Waterloo and Seneca Falls.
