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.

worth a visit

Small but worth honoring herstory. Gives a great overview of women's right to vote. Hard to believe we have only had the right less than 100 years.Nice little gift store.

Trying to teach my children about the debt we owe the suffragettes. I can't believe women have had the right to vote for less than 100 years!

As we were driving home from the Natural Bridge, my sister saw the sign for Susan B. Anthony Birthplace. I've lived in Massachusetts my whole life and never knew she was born here. We did stop, but we did not go into the house. We had to get back home for various reasons, which is why we couldn't go inside.... More

My husband and I stopped at the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum. It was a quiet day and we had the small home/museum to ourselves. The director acted as our docent and gave us options for a self-tour, audio-tour or a guided tour by her. I highly recommend the fully guided tour. There were many stories enthusiastically told that we... More

Nice, small museum highlighting Ms. Anthony's early years and chronicling her life as well. Worth the visit if you're in the area, and easy to do in an hour.

A small house, where she lived until she was six or seven. Not prepossessing, but interesting. Our docent was new, and not super informative, but pleasant and she tried. Others are more erudite.
