Susan B. Anthony died here at home on March 13, 1907. Born in Massachusetts on February 15, 1820 Anthony came to Rochester in 1845 and taught school for several years. She began her public life in the temperance movement but embraced abolitionism and became a leading spokesperson for women’s rights. On November 5, 1872 Anthony and 14 other Rochester women illegally cast votes in a presidential election. Anthony was subsequently arrested and fined $100, which she never paid.
