For more than 200 years a small, but stately brick home has stood steadfastly amid Capitol Hill’s grand buildings. The Sewall-Belmont House is home to the National Woman’s Party, the organization that led the fight for women’s suffrage and equal rights. Today this often-overlooked gem in the shadow of the Supreme Court building tells the story of the women who lobbied, protested and ultimately won the fight for the vote. But it’s also a national historic site that’s struggling to stay afloat amid funding deficits and preservation costs. We explore the history that unfolded at the site and learn about plans for its future.
