The Elizabeth Cady Stanton House, located at 32 Washington Street in Seneca Falls, will reopen for tours beginning Saturday, March 6. Tour times will be 11:15 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. daily. The house is part of Women's Rights National Historical Park.

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 call Women's Rights National Historical Park at 315-568-0024.

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.
