Constructed in 1866, the girlhood home of suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Today the home is maintained by the National 19th Amendment Society, a volunteer, not-for-profit organization. Members maintain the home in order to tell the story of the struggle for women’s suffrage.
