SPECIAL EVENT | "Abolitionists and Suffragettes" Tour


As part of its series of themed tours, Mount Hope Cemetery will host an "Abolitionists and Suffragettes" tour which will tell the stories of local individuals who were once committed to both the fight for women's rights and the anti-slavery movement. The tour includes the grave sites of Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglass, and many others who served as the "army" to create change. The tour will be guided by Sally Millick, who will tell stories about these movements that you probably won't get from the history textbook.

The "Abolitionists and Suffragettes" tour will take place Saturday, July 2, at Mount Hope Cemetery (meet at the North Gatehouse, 791 Mt. Hope Avenue). 11 a.m. $7 per person; free for members and children under 16 (Cash or check only).
