Today is the last day to vote for the National Women’s Hall of Fame in the “Partners for Preservation” contest sponsored by American Express.
Since 1979, the National Women’s Hall of Fame has operated out of the old Seneca Falls bank building and drawn 8,000 to 11,000 visitors a year. In 2020, the organization plans to open the doors of its new location at the 1844 Seneca Knitting Mill. Along with the four-story mill building.
To secure funds for the big move, the hall applied for a grant through the Partners in Preservation program – a collaboration by The National Trust for Historic Preservation, Main Street America and American Express. The program will give $2 million to projects within the U.S. based on public participation. The NWHF, one of 20 finalist groups, needs to rank among the top performers in a public vote campaign in order to receive $150,000 in funding.
