Sewall Belmont House & Museum Reopens

The Sewall-Belmont House & Museum reopened to the public on Wednesday, May 18, 2011, after almost one year of renovation. Congress paid for the $2 million renovation, and the National Park Service gives the house an annual stipend.

The Sewall-Belmont House and Museum, on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, celebrates women’s progress toward equality—and explores the evolving role of women and their contributions to society—through educational programs, tours, exhibits, research and publications.

The historic National Woman’s Party (NWP), a leader in the campaign for equal rights and women’s suffrage, owns, maintains and interprets the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum. One of the premier women’s history sites in the country, this National Historic Landmark houses an extensive collection of suffrage banners, archives and artifacts documenting the continuing effort by women and men of all races, religions and backgrounds to win voting rights and equality for women under the law.
