The home where suffragist Susan B. Anthony lived as a teen is being shored up and preserved by New York state.
President Donald Trump, meanwhile, issued a posthumous pardon for Anthony for her arrest in Rochester in 1872.
It's the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, affording American women the right to vote for the first time. It's also the 200th anniversary of Anthony's birth, a New Yorker who led the suffragist movement through the 19th century.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday announced Anthony's home in Washington County would have repairs done to its roof, masonry, drainage, and mold removal. The repairs are expected to be completed by September.
"New York has been the birthplace to many of the progressive movements that have left an indelible mark on our society while pushing the nation forward and particularly for women's suffrage, which began at Seneca Falls and included legendary New Yorkers such as Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and so many more," Cuomo said.
"As we commemorate the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, we must also recognize there is more work to be done,” he said. “New York will continue to lead the nation in creating greater equality for all and we are proud to preserve and enhance this important part of American history for future generations."
Trump, meanwhile, issued a pardoned to Anthony, who was arrested while trying to vote. She was fined $100.
The pardon drew some criticism from Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, who called on the pardon to be rescinded. The arrest, Hochul wrote on Twitter, was part of the advocacy campaign for the right to vote.
"She was proud of her arrest to draw attention to the cause for women’s rights, and never paid her fine," Hochul wrote on Twitter. "Let her Rest In Peace, @realDonaldTrump."
