In honor of the ratification of the 19th Amendment in August 1920, the Frances Willard House Museum has special suffrage themed tours on Women’s Equality Day, Thursday, Aug. 26 at 1, 2 and 3 p.m.
Highlights from the museum collection that tell the suffrage story will be featured, as well as Rightfully Hers, a visiting pop-up display from the National Archives that ties the national suffrage story to today. What better way to commemorate the struggle for women’s rights than visiting the home and workplace of one of the most prominent suffragists of the 19th century.
Tours are available by reservation only, including for Aug. 26th. Visitors should request a tour at least 48 hours in advance using the online reservation form or by calling (847) 328-7500. Tour fees are $15 per person. Admission is free for students at all levels.
