Remembering a history maker in Canandaigua

Hundreds of men, women and children hoisted protest signs, donned period costumes, and shouted their support for the history-making woman who dared to vote.

Members of the Ontario County Historical Society and 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse teamed up Saturday night to host the Susan B. Anthony Legacy Event on the 144th anniversary of the start of Anthony’s historic trial in 1873.

The night started at the Ontario County Historical Society where a mob of costumed suffragists and families viewed the exhibit “Votes for Women: The Suffrage Movement in Ontario County.”

Attorney Aaron Sperano and his 10-year-old daughter, Natalie, made their way through the exhibit.
