The Sewall House has stood strong on Capitol Hill for over two hundred years. Early occupants of the house participated in the formulation of Congress and witnessed the construction of the US Capitol and the Supreme Court. In 1929, the National Womanâ€™s Party (NWP) purchased the house, and it soon evolved into a center for feminist education and social change. For over sixty years, the trail-blazing NWP utilized the strategic location of the house to lobby for womenâ€™s political, social, and economic equality. Today, the Sewall-Belmont House & Museum tells the compelling story of a community of women who dedicated their lives to the fight for womenâ€™s rights. The innovative tactics and strategies these women devised became the blueprint for womenâ€™s progress throughout the twentieth century. The Museum exhibits highlight the tactics and strategies used during the 20th century womenâ€™s rights movement. Artifacts from the NWP collection bring the story to life. Public Programs showcase the Museumâ€™s commitment to continuing conversations on womenâ€™s progress while examining the ongoing national and international quest for womenâ€™s equality. The site was dedicated as a National Historic Landmark for its significance to the history of the United States. The Sewall-Belmont House & Museum, along with the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Star Spangled Banner, was named by Congress as a nationally significant preservation project in legislation establishing the â€œSave Americaâ€™s Treasuresâ€ program. Adjacent to the Hart Senate Office Building, the Sewall-Belmont House & Museum stands at the corner of 2nd Street and Constitution Avenue, NE.

It has just begun. There is hardly a field, economic or political, in which the natural and unaccustomed policy is not to ignore womenâ€¦Unless women are prepared to fight politically they must be content to be ignored politically.â€â€â€Alice Paul, NWP National Chairman, 1920 â€œMay it stand for years and years to come, telling of the work that the women of the United States have accomplished; the example we have given foreign nations; and our determination that they shall beâ€â€as ourselvesâ€â€free citizens, recognized as the equals of men.â€ â€â€Alva Belmont, January 4, 1931 144 Constitution Ave, NE | Washington, DC 20002 email@example.com Metrorail Union Station (Red Line) Capitol South (Blue/Orange Lines)
