31. Susan B. Anthony Gravesite

Central marker of the Anthony plot gives precedence to the names of other family members.
Type: Officially Marked Monument Involved: Anthony, Susan B.
Location: 1133 Mount Hope Avenue, Rochester, NY Cause: Abolition; Woman's Rights / Suffrage

Susan B. Anthony was interred in Mount Hope Cemetery, Rochester's premier memorial park. Anthony reposes beneath a rather modest white marker on a family plot; the marker has suffered from weathering and is somewhat difficult to read. The grave can be found in Section C, Plot 93; several helpful markers guide visitors from the cemetery's internal thoroughfare, Linden Avenue.

Anthony's grave and that of her fellow abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, are the two most-visited sites in this picturesque Victorian cemetery.
