Susan B. Anthony House
A National Historic Landmark, this Rochester, N.Y., house was the home and headquarters of feminist Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906) for nearly half a century. Countless meetings to organize for women's rights were held in this house. In 1872, Anthony was famously arrested in the house because she had voted in the presidential election—a criminal act for a woman.
