Seneca Falls, NY – The National Women’s Hall of Fame would like to acknowledge the Town of Seneca Falls, NY for its continued support. As we celebrate more than 50 years of honoring great women, we recognize with gratitude the unwavering support of the Town and residents of Seneca Falls. Over a Century ago, with the Introduction of the Declaration of Sentiments, this town cemented its place in American History standing at the forefront supporting women, progress, and human rights. We at the Hall respect differences of opinion, embrace free speech, and honor those who serve our nation. Please join us as we honor great women, including our servicewomen on Sept. 14, 2019, at our Induction ceremony.
About the National Women’s Hall of Fame
The National Women’s Hall of Fame was founded in 1969 and is the nation’s oldest membership organization and museum dedicated to honoring and celebrating the achievements of distinguished American women. In pursuit of its mission of “Showcasing Great Women…Inspiring All,” the National Women’s Hall of Fame honors the women of the past, relates the history of women’s struggles, prepares the women of the future and serves as the voice celebrating the value of women.
Situated in Seneca Falls, NY, the birthplace of women’s rights, the Hall tells women’s stories by focusing on the leadership lessons from its inductees throughout American history. The Hall is in the process of revitalizing the former Seneca Knitting Mill as its new home with the plan to create a vibrant, state-of-the-art facility serving as a leadership center and an educational venue where visitors can discover and be inspired by the stories of great American women.
