As the 19th Amendment turns 100, Cranaleith is an ideal place to learn about our local connection to Women’s Suffrage. Cranaleith’s historic home, now on the National Register of History Places, was a gathering and planning place for suffragettes, including Susan B. Anthony who was a frequent guest. Commissioned in 1890 and completed in 1891, the home was designed by architect Minerva Parker Nichols for local suffragist Rachel Foster Avery.
Susan B. Anthony stayed at the home many times during her speaking tours around the country, and Avery resided in the home during her tenure as Corresponding Secretary for the National American Woman’s Suffrage Association of which Susan B. Anthony was founder.
