Women’s Rights National Historical Park

Women’s Rights National Historical Park

Located in Seneca Falls, New York, you will find the Women's Rights National Historical Park. This park holds several different educational and historic buildings that help enlighten and educate guests on women's rights and the path that got us to where we are today.

Your group will be able to explore the onsite Visitor Center, a couple of historic homes, the Wesleyan Chapel, and various pieces of public art while here. You may also want to take part in any daily ranger programs happening or any special events. Here is a little bit more about each spot you can visit while here:

  • Visitor Center - Learn all about the history of the women's rights movement through exhibits, art, and film.
  • Wesleyan Chapel - This is the location of the first women's rights convention in 1848, a spot many people consider to be the formal beginning of women's rights.
  • The Waterwall at Declaration Park - This 100-foot long bluestone water feature is inscribed with the words of the Declaration of Sentiments.
  • Elizabeth Cady Stanton House - Home to Stanton and her family for 15 years, Stanton being one of the organizers of the women's rights convention.
  • M'Clintock House - The home in which the Declaration of Sentiments was drafted.
