Seneca Falls Bus Trip

  • Oneonta Historical Center 183 Main Street Oneonta, NY, 13820 United States (map)

The Greater Oneonta Historical Society (GOHS) is sponsoring a full-day trip to Seneca Falls on Thursday October 5, 2017. This trip in a Hale Transportation bus includes tours of the National Women’s Hall of Fame and the Women’s Rights National Historical Park, and will end with wine tasting at the Montezuma Winery. 
Tour organizer Marjorie Pietraface says, "Seneca Falls is famous for its part in the women’s rights movement. It is the site of the first Women’s Rights Convention. Even though women’s suffrage was first proposed in the United States Senate in 1878, it took until August 26, 1920, for women to gain the full right to vote. In 2017 Seneca Falls is celebrating the 100th anniversary of women obtaining the right to vote in New York State."

Registration forms are available at www.OneontaHistory.org and at the History Center at 183 Main Street, Oneonta. The cost of the trip is $90.00. The registration deadline is September 18. Part of the $90.00 registration will be a donation to GOHS. For more information, call tour organizers Bill and Marge Pietraface at (607) 432-1385.
