The Women's Interfaith Institute is located in historic Seneca Falls, internationally recognized as the birthplace of Women’s Rights.

It was in Seneca Falls, in 1848, that Elizabeth Cady Stanton led a march to the Wesleyan Chapel, meeting with fellow activists and abolitionists Lucretia Mott, Jane and Richard Hunt, Mary Ann McClintock, and Frederick Douglass, among many others, to convene the first convention to discuss society’s disregard for women.

Seneca Falls is now home to several museums and monuments commemorating the Convention, including the preserved Wesleyan Chapel, now part of Women’s Right National Historical Park, located next door to the Women’s Interfaith Institute.

The two historic buildings share an interrelated history. Learn more.
