We loved how the two homes associated with Susan B. Anthony were next door to each other, nestled in a bustling family centered neighborhood. The walking tour was interesting and very informative. We came away with a newfound appreciation for Ms. Anthony, her family, and friends.

Was a little hard to find with our GPS and streets in the area with similar names. Was worth the hunt as the tour was very interesting and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. They made it appealing & interesting for kids.

All women should take children, teens and boys and girls and everyone to this wonderful house where Susan B. Anthony lived and worked tirelessly to get women the right to vote. Her tenacity, devotion. determination and pure guts resulted in this the 94th anniversary of women's right to vote !! Failure is not an Option were her lasting words.

Our tour guide was an intelligent, passionate and knowledgeable lady called Judy, whom we thoroughly recommend.

Unique architecture. An entire square of period houses. The flavor of Ms. Anthony's dedicated life of activism and self discipline. I love this place.

A must see to learn about emancipation although the docent was a little vague and confused about some key facts and dates. Luckily the printed displays gave better information.

Susan B. Anthony Home is located just West of the Downtown Rochester, New York. I called to confirm the hours of operation (opens at 11:00) and got great driving directions.

My family enjoyed this little piece of history while in Rochester. You first enter the family house next door to the Anthony home. This is where you pay and meet your docent for the tour.

The docent was incredibly well informed and a joy to listen to. The house has been restored as accurately as possible. Absolutely worth a visit.
