Votetilla

Join us for a  weeklong navigational celebration along the Erie Canal/Votes for Women Trail. Rented canal boats (at least 3) will carry historical re-enactors and others from Seneca Falls to Rochester; boats will dock at towns and villages along the way, with programs at each stop; fireworks upon landing in Rochester Friday, July 21. The “Last Mile” of the route from Corn Hill Landing to the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House will be celebrated with a parade on Saturday, July 22.

The goals of VoteTilla are to promote the Votes for Women Trail; commemorate and celebrate the NYS woman suffrage centennial; promote the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House as the museum authority on Susan B. Anthony; promote the history of woman suffrage and its relevance today; engage communities (large and small) along the route; and collaborate and educate.
