Wesleyan Chapel

In 1848, the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel in Seneca Falls served as a haven for radical speakers. Abolitionists, temperance workers, and women's rights activists, among others, spoke from its podium. On July 19 and 20, 1848, the "Great Light House of Seneca Falls" housed the First Women's Rights Convention ever held in the United States, the beginning of the formal struggle of U.S. women for their equal rights. When the Convention was over, 100 men and women had signed a manifesto for change: The Declaration of Sentiments.
