CALENDAR OF EVENTS

This year Lippitt House Museum commemorates the Centennial of the 19th Amendment with programs that feature women and draw attention to the long struggle for universal suffrage. Ratified by the states in 1920, the 19th Amendment stated a person’s right to vote can’t be denied because of sex.  Throughout 2020, Lippitt House Museum will highlight this important milestone with themed programs, tours, concerts, and a special installation.
