About the museum

Welcome to the Susan B Anthony Birthplace Museum.  This Quaker federal-style home, nestled in the Berkshires Mountains, is on the National Historic Registry. 

The Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation, dedicated to preserving the birthplace and raising public awareness of the wide-ranging legacy of the great social reformer, Susan B. Anthony, who was a pioneering feminist and suffragist as well as a noteworthy figure in the abolitionist, opposition to Restellism (opposition to abortion), and temperance movements of the 19th century. As part of its mission, the Museum will highlight the familial and regional influences which shaped Ms. Anthony’s early life, by displaying the textiles and furnishings of that period, as well as the literature and other memorabilia associated with her later career.

You are about to walk through the home where Susan B Anthony, America’s greatest woman human rights leader, was born.  We will learn how this small Massachusetts community, her Quaker Faith, and her family molded Susan into the international figure she is today.

This passion is still alive in the local descendants of the Anthony Family. The garden, near the door where you entered, is in memory of Ralph and Margaret Anthony and donated by their daughter, Lucy Anthony Czaja.
