How did the Women’s Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls come to be? That was the topic of a talk by the first park superintendent Judy Hart who was back in Seneca Falls for the Convention Days Weekend.
The park consists of four major historical properties including the Wesleyan Chapel which was the site of the first Women’s Rights convention, the Elizabeth Cady Stanton House, and the homes of other early women’s rights activists, the M’Clintock House and the Hunt House both in Waterloo.
The Women’s Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls is only one of 5 parks out of more than 400 that tell the story of women in America.
Women’s Rights National Historical Park was established in 1980.
Hart plans to write a book about the formation of the national park in Seneca Falls.
