Item#: 345959




The Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, built in 1843, is the site of the First Women's Rights Convention held in the United States. On July 19 and 20, 1848, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Martha Wright, Mary Ann M'Clintock, and Jane Hunt hosted this convention to discuss the social, civil, and religious condition of woman. Three hundred people gathered in the Wesleyan Chapel in Seneca Falls, NY, and one hundred of them signed the Declaration of Sentements. This two-day meeting launched the movement to secure equal rights for women, including the right to vote.
