Inscription.  
Suffragist and political activist Grace Julian Clarke moved to Irvington by 1874 and lived in the house here. She earned her BA and MA from Butler University. As Indiana Federation of Clubs president, 1910 to 1911, she advanced women’s social and political reform work. Clarke helped revive Indiana’s suffrage movement in 1911 by co-founding the Woman's Franchise League.

By undertaking automobile tours, founding the Legislative Council of Indiana Women at the statehouse, writing for the Indianapolis Star, and leveraging women’s WWI relief work, Clarke was integral to Indiana’s 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment. While working to secure suffrage, Clarke lobbied for the League of Nations as an international peace activist.
