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 house when you actually get the there, looks nice. But, when you go inside , there's not so much to look at. A tremendous amount of reading. And, only a few rooms on the first floor. Not so much!
