Seneca Falls is the home of the United States Women's Rights National Historical Park - site of the seminal 1848 Seneca Falls Women's Rights Convention. In addition, Seneca Falls has a beautiful historic downtown.  Ever wanted to get to know Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott?  Are you a fan of suffrage?  (Who's not?)  Come along!  The group will be visiting the Historical Park, Museums and touring downtown. The drive is approximately 45 minute each way; expect to leave at 1pm and return close to 6pm. 

Anyone with an interest in feminist history or preservation is welcome.  If you'd like to come along, please email Jon Rusch (jar469@cornell.edu) or Lydia Morken (ljm234@cornell.edu) by Friday, November 18.  There are two confirmed cars; if you are also willing to drive, please let them know (gas expenses will be reimbursed).
