An official Path Through History Site! The National Susan B. Anthony Museum and House in Rochester is the site where the pioneer leader for women’s rights lived during the 40 most politically active years of her life, until her death in 1906. When she was not tirelessly campaigning for women’s suffrage, she was here writing, organizing and strategizing with other reformers and famously getting arrested for voting in 1872. The museum exhibits artifacts related to her life and work, such as original furniture, her famous black silk dress and a statue featuring Anthony with abolitionist Frederick Douglass.
