Susan B. Anthony House

Rochester, New York

A National Historic Landmark, this house was the home and headquarters of feminist Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906) for nearly half a century. Countless meetings to organize for women's rights were held in this house. In 1872, Anthony was famously arrested in the house because she had voted in the presidential election-a criminal act for a woman.
