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 as well as a noteworthy figure in the abolitionist, opposition to Restellism (opposition to abortion), and temperance movements of the 19th century. As part of its mission, the Museum will highlight the familial and regional influences which shaped Ms.Anthony’s early life, by displaying the textiles and furnishings of that period, as well as the literature and other memorabilia associated with her later career.
The Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum is a Federal-style house, on the National Registry of Historic Places. Anthony was born in the house, built by her father, in 1820. The house was bought in 2006, restored and opened in the spring of 2010 as a museum. To date, the Birthplace has had nearly 4,000 visitors and runs a successful event series, with local and national authors and human rights activists.
