Statement of Significance (as of designation - April 1, 1998):
Kate Mullany, who organized and led Troy's all-female Collar Laundry Union in the 1860s, was America's most prominent female labor leader. Male unionists recognized her group as the only bona fide female union in the country, and applauded her success in bargaining with laundry owners for her objectives. Mullany and her cohorts also supported other working unions and labor activity. She lived in this typical working-class brick rowhouse from 1869 until her death in 1906.
