Waterloo, NY - The M’Clintock House, located at 14 East Williams Street in Waterloo, will reopen for tours beginning Saturday, May 26. The site will be open Thursday through Sunday, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM, throughout the summer. Interpretive programs about the M’Clintock family will be offered at 2:00 and 3:00 on those days. The house is part of Women’s RightsNationalHistoricalPark.
The house was the home of Thomas and Mary Ann M’Clintock, prominent Quakers active in both the anti-slavery and women’s rights movements. Their home served as a stop on the Underground Railroad and was the site for planning the First Women’s Rights Convention held in 1848, in Seneca Falls. The parlor of the home is recognized as the location where the Declaration of Sentiments, presented at the convention, was drafted.
The M’Clintock House has been restored to its 1848 appearance and is listed as part of the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom. There is no charge for admission and the house is handicapped accessible. For more information call Women’s Rights National Historical Park at 315-568-0024.
