February 15th is Susan B. Anthony’s 195th birthday. The Susan B. Anthony Day on February 15th is observed in New York, California, Florida, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Visit Anthony’s home in Rochester, New York. Or go there vicariously online. Either way you can have a blast at Susan B. Anthony’s 195th birthday party. Lynn Sheer is the keynote speaker at the annual birthday fundraiser for the Susan B. Anthony Museum & House at 17 Madison in Rochester, New York in an event that attracts hundreds of people, some years as many as 700 or more.
Our scout, Kenneth C. Clark, has been on the Susan B. Anthony trail where he photographed the outside of the Ontario County Courthouse in Canandaigua, NY, the location of Susan B. Anthony’s 1873 trial for illegal voting. Travelers on their way to Rochester often find the detour to the courthouse worth their time. VIDEO about Susan’s trial and the courthouse.
