Susan B. Anthony House
This site was the home of Susan B. Anthony for a large portion of her life, including the time in which she was most active in politics. It was while living in this house that Anthony somehow managed to cast a ballot -- for which she was arrested, because it was at the time illegal for women to vote.
In addition to her woman’s rights activism, Anthony was very active in the abolition movement. Fellow Rochester abolitionist Frederick Douglass was a frequent guest at her home, as she was at his downtown and later suburban Rochester homes.
The site’s official Web site has this to say:
Today, the house is a museum with National Historic Landmark status. The Susan B. Anthony Preservation District is a nine-block area around The Susan B. Anthony House and Susan B. Anthony Square. It is one of the last intact 19th century middle-class neighborhoods in the country and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places."
