CONCLUDED – 3 Reform Causes Impacting Seneca Falls in the mid 19th Century

3 Reform Causes Impacting Seneca Falls
In the mid 19th Century

WOMEN’S RIGHTS – TEMPERANCE – ABOLITION

Why was Seneca Falls such a hotbed of reform in woman’s rights, temperance and abolition in the years preceding the Civil War? If you want information to answer that question, come to the Wesleyan Chapel (136 Fall Street, Seneca Falls) on Friday, July 6th, at 7:00pm for a presentation by Seneca County Historian Walter Gable. This program is another partnership event between the Seneca Museum and the Women’s Rights National Historical Park.


Mr. Gable who will show how these three major reform causes were impacting Seneca Falls in the mid-19th century. Several different societies were established seeking to achieve a total ban on the consumption of alcohol or to limit greatly its use. Several businesses advertised that they catered to “temperance” clientele. All kinds of anti-slavery activism were taking place in Seneca Falls, including helping freedom seekers reach freedom via the Underground Railroad, speeches by famous abolitionist speakers, conducting anti-slavery fairs, meetings of the Free Soil and Liberty political parties, formation of a new Wesleyan Church, and the sending of anti-slavery petitions to Congress. Basic events of the July 1848 woman’s rights convention will be covered, as well as some analysis of the signers and non-signers of the Declaration of Sentiments. Mr. Gable will also show how the Rhoda Bement church trial was a microcosm of how these three causes were evolving and interacting five years before the woman’s rights convention of 1848.

CONCLUDED – Dan Ward – Boom and Bust Movie

Friday JUNE 29th – 7:00pm

Guntzel Theatre –

Women’s Rights National Historical Park

Continuing the partnership between the  Seneca Museum and the Women’s National Historical Park  our next program is being presented in the Guntzel Theatre in the Visitor Center of Women’s Rights National Historical Park.

DANIEL FRANKLIN WARD, PhD, (a native of Seneca Falls) is a folklorist, historian and an independent consultant in cultural research, cultural resources management and presentation. He has directed research, fieldwork, documentation, development, production and presentation historical projects for various organizations throughout the United States. Since 2005 Dr. Ward has co-directed a statewide consortium of organizations and individuals who have developed a number of Erie Canal-related projects conducted in ports along the length of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor.

The most recent of these efforts is a documentary film, BOOM AND BUST: AMERICA’S JOURNEY ON THE ERIE CANAL. This film, co-produced by Dr. Ward and and Steve Zeitlin and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker, Paul Wagner, is a meditation on economic cycles and the American Dream. This remarkable film tells the story of industrial expansion and decline along the Erie Canal, and examines its impact on the lives of workers in steel , grain, textiles and shipping. In the wake of economic collapse, can the people of America’s cities find meaning and worth? Produced by City Lore, the Erie Canal Museum and American Focus, Inc. There are several scenes filmed in Seneca Falls.
