Limited edition ornament celebrates 19th Amendment in Seneca Falls

A limited edition ornament commemorating the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution is being released by the Seneca Falls Development Corporation.

The 19th Amendment of 1920 gave women the right to vote, 72 years after the first women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls in July 1848 demanded women’s suffrage as a basic right.

Designed by SFDC Executive Director Greg Zellers and made in the United States, the 2020 ornament features a two-dimensional design with brilliant gold and purple colors, the colors of the women’s rights and suffrage movements.

The bell is marked with “100” and “XIX” and the Three Ladies featured marks the day when Amelia Bloomer introduced Elizabeth Cady Stanton of Seneca Falls to her friend, Susan B. Anthony.
