As We Continue To Celebrate Women’s History Month…

The American Colonial Revival home built at 200 North Avenue 66 just north of York Boulevard was home to two early women’s rights activists: Anna Howard Shaw (1847-1919) and Cora Scott Pond Pope (1856-1932).

Shaw and Pope bought the land in 1886, though they were still living and working in Boston with the Women’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU). Shaw was a physician and the first ordained female Methodist minister in the United States. She was a close friend of Susan B. Anthony and became her personal physician, tending to Anthony as her health deteriorated prior to her death in 1906.
