Meet Some Of Our 2022 Summer Interns!
Each year, the Birthplace Museum finds esteemed individuals who are dedicated to continuing and expanding the programs of the Birthplace to get a behind-the-scenes feel for working at the museum. We are a family of creative minds, curators, and new professionals in different fields who are bound by a passion for the life and work of our feminist foremothers in the suffrage movement.
We welcome our newest interns for the 2022 summer internship period, Meredith Kottom, Gina Kienle, and Olivia Brubaker.

THE SUSAN B. ANTHONY BIRTHPLACE
Watch Mill Girls Musings on YT Now!
To commemorate Susan B. Anthony's 202nd birthday, two young North Adams volunteers and sisters used their love of theatre to depict the lives of the mill girls that once resided in the Anthony Family Home when Daniel Anthony, Susan's Father, owned a textile mill in Adams, MA.
We imagine these mill girls were headstrong like Susan, curious like Susan, and certainly hardworking like Susan. We applaud the wonderful work of the writers and stars, Faith and Hope Motta, and the many others who put this short film together for Susan's day.
If you enjoyed watching, please boost the esteem of the young girls and comment, like and follow the short film above!
