The Elizabeth Cady Stanton House, located at 32 Washington Street in Seneca Falls, will close for the winter on Sunday, December 6, 2009. Through that date tours of the house will be available daily. The house will reopen on March 6, 2010.
The house was the home of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, one of the organizers of the First Women's Rights Convention held in 1848, in Seneca Falls. After the convention Stanton was recognized as one of the leaders of the women's rights movement in the United States. In 1869, Stanton, along with Susan B. Anthony, formed the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA). The organization pushed for a woman's suffrage amendment to the United States Constitution.
The Elizabeth Cady Stanton House has been restored to its 1848 appearance and is listed as a National Historic Landmark. For more information and tour times call Women's Rights National Historical Park at 315-568-0024 or visit the park website at www.nps.gov/wori/.
Women's Rights National Historical Park commemorates the story of the First Women's Rights Convention and preserves historical structures associated with it in Seneca Falls and Waterloo, New York. All public tours and programs are free and open to the public.
