"Susan B. Anthony lived in the red brick Victorian House at 17 Madison Street from 1866 until her death in 1906, the forty most politically active years of her life. It was in this house, shared with her sister Mary, that Anthony was arrested for voting in 1872. In the parlor, she met and planned with famous reformers such as Frederick Douglass and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. In 1895, Anthony literally raised the roof of the house, adding a third floor workroom where she and her colleagues wrote the monumental History of Woman Suffrage.
Today, the house is a museum with National Historic Landmark status. In addition to Anthony's belongings, the collection includes priceless photographs documenting the fight for woman suffrage and exhibits in the new Education and Visitor Center."
