Statement of Significance (as of designation - October 5, 1992):
From 1883 to 1931, this was the home of Harriet Taylor Upton, an important figure in both the Woman Suffrage Movement and the Republican Party; in addition, the house was also the national headquarters of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) from 1903 to 1909, a pivotal period in the organization's history. Upton, whose father was a prominent congressman, joined the NAWSA in 1890 and put her political resources at the disposal of the organization, where her congressional connections and her astute organizational skills ensured her rapid rise through the ranks.

Condition:
no threats to the house, but the surrounding area (setting) is in disrepair.

Installation of storm windows; kitchen remodeled; hardwood floors refinished; and exterior repainted.
