Women’s Rights National Historical Park

The National Park Service at Women’s Rights National Historical Park (the Park) is honored to take part in the celebration of the New York State Suffrage Centennial in 2017.  The Park preserves the site of the first women’s rights convention in 1848 in Seneca Falls, NY and the homes of the convention organizers.  The sites remind all of struggles for civil rights, human rights, and equality, global struggles that continue today.  In 2017, the Park will have monthly events to pay tribute to the challenges facing those seeking equality past and present.
