As a thirty-two year old mother of three, Elizabeth Cady Stanton felt like a caged lioness trapped and isolated in her home. When she shared her frustration with a group of Quaker abolitionists on July 9, 1848, the other women not only agreed, but also demanded immediate action. Ten days later in the Wesleyan Chapel of Seneca Falls, New York, they held the First Women's Rights Convention in American history. The park consists of four major historical properties including the Wesleyan Chapel and the homes of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Thomas and Mary Ann M'Clintock.
Leashed pets are permitted in the park, but are not allowed in the buildings. Leashes must be no longer than six feet.
