To Commemorate 19th Amendment Centennial
Women's Suffrage — One of The 19th Century's Most Influential Social Reform Movements — Flourished Along New York's Canal System
Fountain to Celebrate Seneca Falls' Contribution to Suffrage Movement
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced today the installation of an illuminated fountain on the Cayuga-Seneca Canal in Seneca Falls as part of the state's programming commemorating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Placed just offshore from where the first Women's Rights Convention was held in 1848, the fountain is a joint initiative by the New York Power Authority, Canal Corporation and Seneca Falls Development Corporation offering New Yorkers a way to celebrate New York's role in the suffrage story and our state's history of bold women visionaries.
