National Park Service: Women’s Rights

As usual the National Park has done a spectacular job in the Women’s Rights National Park. At the Visitor Center on 136 Fall St., in Seneca Falls, there are a variety of exhibits, films, and ranger talks.

Entering the building more statutes are to be found. Recognize anyone?

There are many exhibits for all ages in this building. Recommend calling ahead for times of ranger talks, and other activities as during the winter there are closures for renovation.

Next door to the Center is where the “action” began in July 1848, with 300 women and men coming together for a convention to discuss and develop a document outlining women’s property, voting, and marriage rights, etc..
