From the Website

The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House shares the story of Susan B. Anthony’s lifelong struggle to gain voting rights for women and equal rights for all. We keep her vision alive and relevant by preserving and sharing Anthony’s National Historic Landmark home; collecting artifacts and research materials directly related to her life and work; and making these resources available to the public through tours, publications, the internet, and interpretive programs.


In [WWW]September 2021 an arsonist set fire to the back porch on the Susan B Anthony House, destroying much of the porch and causing some smoke damage to the house. In [WWW]February 2022 a second fire was set behind 19 Madison Street, the museum visitor center. Museum president Deborah Hughes estimates the damage will end up costing about 80-thousand dollars.
