Women's Rights National Historical Park / by Dave Hileman

Seneca Falls was the site of the first convention to secure women’s rights held in July of 1848. The park has a museum and the former church where the convention was held. The story of why events and people converged on this small town is intriguing and included abolitionists and anti-slavery factions too. Important story well explained here. The statues in the main hall are life size and are used to introduce you to each of the primary people in the story. New park number 12.
