Seneca Falls, NY -- Women’s Rights National Historical Park will host a free viewing event for the total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024 from 1p.m. to 4p.m. at the Elizabeth Cady Stanton House in Seneca Falls. 

When the last total solar eclipse passed over Seneca Falls, New York, in January of 1925, women had only had the legal right to vote for a little over four years. This time, it passes over the first national park dedicated to women’s rights. 

Women’s Rights National Historical Park invites visitors to the lawn of the Elizabeth Cady Stanton house (32 Washington Street, Seneca Falls) for a day of free eclipse-related activities. Families are encouraged to attend, and visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to earn a limited-edition Junior Ranger badge for the eclipse. Local partners including the Seneca Museum of Waterways and Industry will provide additional activities at the Stanton Home. Activities and eclipse viewing glasses are free and open to the public, no reservations are required. 

The April 8th total solar eclipse is an exceptionally rare event; only 27 of the 425 national parks in the United States will witness the totality of the eclipse. The time of totality in Seneca Falls will be 3:21 to 3:24 p.m. Additionally, this will be the only chance to witness a total eclipse in Seneca Falls for at least the next two centuries. For more information on the eclipse event and Women’s Rights National Historical Park, visit, or call 315 568-0024.
