The Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum

Museum - Other

The Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation, dedicated to preserving the birthplace and raising public awareness of the wide-ranging legacy of the great social reformer, Susan B. Anthony, who was a pioneering feminist and suffragist.

This rural, Federal-style home was the birthplace and childhood home of Susan Brownell Anthony, an advocate for the rights of women and other social causes. Anthony was born in 1820 and lived in the house until the age of seven. She returned several times throughout her life.

The Birthplace Museum displays artifacts and ephemera of Susan B. Anthony and the familial and regional influences that shaped Anthony’s early life, by displaying the textiles and furnishings of that period and the literature and other memorabilia associated with her later career.

We strive to provide high-quality, engaging programming including reenactments, scholarly lectures, demonstrations of historic trades and everyday tasks, workshops teaching crafts and games, and interdisciplinary curriculum for all ages and grad levels. We pride ourselves on working with local and regional scholars and performers to enrich our community's understanding of the social and political developments in the United States from 1820-1920.
