2020 marks the 100-year anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to our U.S. Constitution which guaranteed women the right to vote. The Fenton History Center is commemorating this historic event with guided tours that bring to life the history of the Women’s Suffrage movement. The tour will be hosted by a costumed guide, and you will visit with some of the women who made suffrage possible in 1920! Women such as Elizabeth Fenton and her daughters, Josephine and Jeannette; Edith Anige; and Louisa Grandin will come to life, portrayed by costumed actors in the historic 1865 mansion.
Also on display through the summer of 2020 is the “Why Not New York; The Road to the Vote” exhibit, previously exhibited in 2017, the 100-year anniversary of New York State granting women the right to vote.
The interactive tours will be in led in smaller groups.
Register for one of three time slots.
