Where Women Made History

Any idea where Emma Willard established the country's first secondary school for women?  Or where America's first female dentist set up shop?

In honor of the centennial of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is crowdsourcing 1,000 locations where ladies made history – including sites both landmarked (the home of Susan B. Anthony where she was arrested for voting in 1872) and overlooked (the house where Juliette Gordon Low held the first-ever Girl Scouts meeting).

Plus, the National Trust's African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund has awarded grants to 27 organizations to help them preserve Black history.
