Description: Historic home of Matilda Joslyn Gage, Abolitionist & Women's Rights Activist from 1826 -1898.
Matilda Joslyn Gage belongs in the historical record with Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton as one of the three major leaders of the National Woman Suffrage Association.
Today her restored home features 6 themed areas, five of which document Ms. Gage's life work: Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) values and Native Sovereignty, Women's Rights, Underground Railroad and Abolition, Religious Freedom, the Family/Oz Parlor and local history.
Photos show Restored Oz Family Parlor & Presentation on Two Row Wampum by Onondaga Nation Chief Jake Edwards.
Our Story: "Write down those stories you tell your children," Matilda Joslyn Gage instructed her son-in-law. He listened, and we have the Wonderful Wizard of Oz and the 13 other OZ books. Visit the only home in the country open to the public where Baum lived and see his 1887 photos that guided the restoration of the Gage home.
