Alice Paul Institute

Alice Paul Institute

 As the Alice Paul Institute, Paulsdale now serves a unique mission as a women’s heritage and girls’ leadership development center.

The Alice Paul Institute, headquartered at historic Paulsdale in Mount Laurel Township, New Jersey, stands as a living monument to Alice Paul's memory.

Alice Paul was a major leader in the women's suffrage movement, a woman all about 'education, empowerment, and equality'. Alice put her life's work into the fight for gender equality, a fight you can learn all about inside the institute.

On the first floor, you will find exhibit space and classrooms, the exhibits showing personal items like diplomas and family mementos, as well as general suffrage memorabilia. The permanent exhibit we suggest you study the hardest is Alice Paul: In Pursuit of Ordinary Equality. The 3rd floor holds a research library, all of which you can see in the Paulsdale or Paulsdale Insider guided tours.

The institute sits on 7 acres and was first opened in 1840. Save plenty of time to explore the 'home farm'!
