ADAMS, Mass. A house in Adams will be transformed over the next 14 months to look as it did in 1820 the year Susan B. Anthony was born there.
The founder of the women's rights movement lived in the federal-styled home until the age of 7, when her family moved to New York state.
The house stood vacant when it was purchased in August 2006 by Carol Crossed and designated as the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace and Museum.
Plans for the house include adding a period fence and restoring windows on the south-facing facade.
Crossed calls Anthony one of the most significant women in US history. She founded the women's suffrage movement, which culminated in 1920 with passage of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote.
