Adams, MA (LifeNews.com) — A pro-life feminist group will hold a weekend open house at the home of renown pro-life women’s rights leader Susan B. Anthony. In 2006, Carol Crossed, a longtime New York pro-life advocate who has been a leader with Feminists for Life of America and Democrats for Life, purchased the historic home.
Crossed purchased Anthony’s historic Massachusetts birthplace on the 100th anniversary of her death and turned it into a museum.
Crossed announced that two phases of renovation and preservation were completed in 2008 and this weekend will present an excellent opportunity for the public to see the home.
"This is a rare opportunity for the public to walk through the house and enter the dream of making it into a museum," she said.
"We have a new roof, a state of the art heating system and site stabilization. The second floor is a modern space for an office and storage. Guests will have an opportunity to register as friends and supporters of the museum and to offer written suggestions," Crossed added.
Feminists for Life of America is promoting the open house, which will celebrate the suffragist’s birthday on Sunday, February 15, from 11:30 am to 2:30 p.m.
"If you are looking for a great road trip this three-day weekend, may I also suggest that you visit Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum in the historic town of Adams, Massachusetts," Serrin Foster, the group’s president, told LifeNews.com.
Foster thanked Crossed for her hard work in preserving the home.
"Our congratulations and sincere thanks go to Carol Crossed, who purchased this important home for generations to come, and the Birthplace Museums board of directors for their efforts to restore the home and their exciting plans to create a museum worthy of Anthony," she added.
Located at 67 East Road, the Federal style home was built by Anthony’s father, Daniel, in 1818 and his famous daughter was born there two years later. The house has been on the National Register of Historic Places for 24 years; the dream of making the house into a museum has persisted since 1910.
