Historical dialogue featuring Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Portrayed by Dr. Melinda Grube

We are proud to have Women’s Rights National Historical Park as a sponsor again this year. The M’Clintock House on East Williams Street was the home of Thomas and Mary Ann M’Clintock from 1836-1856. The family were active Quaker abolitionists, actively engaged in the Underground Railroad, and were major organizers of the first Woman’s Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls, NY, in July of 1848.

In honor of Memorial Day, Women’s Rights National Historical Park will offer an open house at the M’Clintock House from 10:30 AM – 4:00 PM on Saturday May 25 and Sunday May 26.  A ranger will rove Lafayette Park 1-3 p.m. Saturday and 1-3 p.m. Sunday.

On Saturday at 1:15 AND Sunday at Noon, The beautiful harmonies and songs of Merry Mischief from by gone times will set the mood in advance of the characterizations of Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
Step back in time with music and learn from the wisdom of those who have tread the stairs of politics and women’s rights at this historic museum.

 

At the M’Clintock House at 1:45 pm and 3:00 pm Saturday, May 25th and 12:30 pm and 2:00 pm Sunday, May 26th, there will be Historical dialogues on women’s rights and women’s suffrage featuring Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Portrayed by Dr. Melinda Grube.

Kids will have an opportunity to join in the fun, playing lawn games or writing their own Kids’ Declaration of Sentiments in the M’Clintock House yard.

 

 

 

Melinda Grube focuses on the life and work of suffragist and freethinker Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who helped to organize the first Woman’s Rights Convention in her hometown of Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848.  Melinda Grube is an adjunct lecturer in history at Cayuga Community College in Auburn, New York, and a longtime interpreter of regional women’s-rights history
