It was in this home, owned by Richard and Jane Hunt, that the idea of America's first Women's Rights Convention took hold. 

Located in Waterloo, New York, the home was the setting for an afternoon tea discussion during which Elizabeth Cady Stanton raised the issue of such a convention.

The date of the meeting was the 13th of July, 1848.  It took nearly 75 more years before American women finally gained the right to vote.
