When Anthony Met Stanton
In May 1851, there was a chance encounter on the streets of Seneca Falls which forever altered the struggle for women's rights. Amelia Jenks Bloomer introduced Susan B. Anthony to Elizabeth Cady Stanton. The friendship that forged between Stanton and Anthony gave direction and momentum to the seventy-two year struggle for women's suffrage which culminated on August 26, 1920 in the passage of the 19th Amendment to the United State Constitution. Neither women lived to see this happen.
When the Prospect House opened at Blue Mountain Lake in 1882, it became the first hotel in the world to have an electric light in every room. Power was provided by two, steam-driven, "Z" dynamos manufactured by the Edison Machine Works.
