This year marks the centennial of women getting the right to vote in New York State. However, a century ago not all women wanted the vote and many opposed the passage of the suffrage amendment to the New York State Constitution. Among them was Agnes Swan Hutchins (1864-1951) who served as the President of the Geneva Auxiliary of the New York Association Opposed to Suffrage. Born and raised at Rose Hill, how did Agnes become an anti-suffragist? During the tour visitors will explore the life and times of Agnes and come to under why she (and other women) became an “anti.”
