Suffrage Centennial Celebration

On the same day, November 11, at 1 p.m. the History Center invites the public to attend a centennial celebration of NYS woman suffrage inside the L. Caroline Underwood Museum at 107 Chapel Street, Penn Yan.  Appearances will be made by Susan B. Anthony and Florence Upson, local suffragist.   Enjoy the “Hear Our One Voice” suffrage exhibit and hear the stories of remarkable women of the area.  View the corsets and hoop skirts restricting them.  Find your family on the rare petition boards.  Honor the women who campaigned, argued and fought for the right to vote.  Refreshments will be served.
