Celebrating the Women's Suffrage Centennial

Northeast Ohio Women's Suffrage Driving Tour


This virtual tour takes you to the historic sites and museums across northeast Ohio that either played an integral role in the Women's Suffrage Movement, by hosting individuals or events related to the movement, or contains artifacts and memorabilia that tell the story of the meetings and events pertaining to women's suffrage rights. Many of the leading suffragists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were native or local to the region, and often obtained an education from Oberlin College or Lake Erie College's predecessor institution, Lake Erie Female Seminary. These entries were researched and/or edited as a part the women's suffrage centennial celebration by the Northeast Ohio Suffrage Centennial Committee, for which SNUC Trustees served as representatives of Geauga County.
