A dedication will be held on June 18 at 2:00 PM at the Susan B. Anthony home at 2835 NY-29 Greenwich, NY 12834 to mark the installation of a new historical marker. The event will include an unveiling of the marker and remarks from state and local politicians. This event is free and open to the public. The new marker is part of a series connecting the National Votes for Women Trail, sponsored by the Pomeroy Foundation. The text reads: Susan B. Anthony, 1820-1906. Suffragist and abolitionist led lifelong fight for women’s right to vote. Resided here during adolescence 1833-1839. Susan B. Anthony spent her early years in the two-story brick home, built by her father in 1832. The Panic of 1837 changed the course of her and her family’s life forever, forcing them out of the home. Anthony was a leading advocate for women’s rights, passing away in 1906, 14 years short of the ratification of the 19th Amendment.
