Susan B. Anthony House today

The Susan B. Anthony House is an authority on the life and work of women's rights leader Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906), who lived in the home for forty years. As stewards of Anthony's home and artifacts, staff members ensure their preservation while interpreting her story to the public with care and authority.

After being privately owned for many years after her death, Anthony's home was first purchased to become a museum in 1945. In 1966, the house was designated as a National Historic Landmark. From 1994 through 2005, the Susan B. Anthony House received funding to restore the House to look as it did during the last eight years of Anthony's life there (1898-1906) as well as to purchase buildings close by to open a visitor center, Carriage House for special events and educational programs, as well as offices for staff.
