The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House shares Susan B. Anthony’s life and work to inspire others to continue her work for freedom and human rights for all. We keep her vision alive and relevant by preserving and sharing her National Historic Landmark home in Rochester, NY; collecting artifacts and research materials directly related to her life and work; and making these resources available to the public through tours, publications, interpretive programs, and the internet.
The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House was the home of the legendary American civil rights leader during the 40 most politically active years of her life, and the site of her famous arrest for voting in 1872. This home was the headquarters of the National American Woman Suffrage Association when she was its president. This is also where she died in 1906 at age 86, following her "Failure is Impossible" speech in Baltimore. Sharing her story is our purpose and passion.
