A lovingly maintained historic home inhabited by the Anthony family, including the most famous Anthony, suffragette Susan B. Although the house is called the Susan B. Anthony House, the museum's organizers make it clear that Susan was surrounded by family members and friends in the cause of women's voting rights, many of whom lived in the house.
One of the best aspects of the Susan B. Anthony House is its staff. We were heartily welcomed, and our guide was fantastic. She was enthusiastic about the house and the lives of all the women who passed through it. Any questions she couldn't answer, she made sure another staff member did at the tour's conclusion. Even though the house was quite busy with visitors, our group was not rushed.
The gift shop is great, too. I highly recommend stocking up on presents while you're there. It's for a good cause and the message is as relevant today as it was during the lives of the Anthony sisters.
We had never been to Rochester and found it very easy to locate.
