Regarding Susan B. Anthony Voted Here. The Susan B. Anthony House is at 17 Madison St., about a quarter mile west of this marker off main. While one database (not this one) suggests there's a marker there, a bicycle ride-by earlier this week revealed that if it was ever there, it is missing now.
There is a larger plaque, much like the larger one attached to this site. The Susan B. Anthony House and Museum is open for guided tours (check the website for times and dates).
South of this site on Brooks Avenue is the site of the Anthony Family Farm where her father and mother lived and Susan spent some of her childhood.
The trial of Susan B. Anthony occurred in Canandaigua, NY and the courthouse is still there.
