  • We took our 7 year old daughter here while in Rochester for the house tour. Our guide, Martha, was great. The tour was filled with lots of useful history of Susan B. Anthony and the struggle of women fighting for their right to vote. It was interesting to see the home represented as it would have been at the time it was the epicenter of the fight for women's suffrage. Well worth the visit to see how far we have come as a nation and a vivid reminder of the work that still needs to be done.
  • I am handicapped so climbing three flights of stairs was difficult but the guide was so helpful and patient with me and didn't continue the teaching until I got there and made sure I had a chair to sit in. I had a walker and everyone was so helpful. I couldn't bring walker up the stairs but there were very sturdy handrails. The guide was so informative and knowledgeable and showed that she really loved to teach us. I learned a lot and am so much more appreciative of Susan B.
