Statement of Significance (as of designation - June 23, 1965):
Active in numerous reform movements, Susan B. Anthony entered the fight for women's rights in 1851 after meeting Elizabeth Cady Stanton. She was especially effective in garnering legislative petitions and in accompanying them with as many signatures as possible. In 1869 she played a leading role in organizing the National Woman Suffrage Association. Her Rochester residence (1866-1906) is now a museum.

The Susan B. Anthony House received a Save America's Treasures matching grant of $300,000 in 2001 to restore the historic interior and furnishings.
