The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House owns and maintains the Susan B. Anthony House. A National Historic Landmark, the Susan B. Anthony House was the home of the legendary American women's rights leader during the most politically active period of her life, from 1866 until her death in 1906. A group of Rochester women purchased the house in 1945 to be a permanent memorial to Anthony and the cause of women's rights. The House is open to visitors to inspire one and all with the remarkable story of Susan B. Anthony's unrelenting courage and determination. The Susan B. Anthony House is supported primarily through the generosity of its members and donors.
