This house was purchased by the National Woman’s Party in 1929 from Vermont Senator and Mrs. Porter Dale. It was originally named the Alva Belmont House and not only served as the NWP headquarters, but also as a hotel and second home for some party members. Alice Paul took over the reigns of the women’s suffrage movement in 1912, and led the fight for women’s rights and the 19th Amendment. Today, the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument operates in partnership with the National Park Service. A permanent exhibit features over 250 artifacts telling the story of the NWP and women’s suffrage.
This keepsake is hand-crafted from ¾” thick wood with a detailed front design and a description on the back. You can set it neatly on a shelf, desk or narrow ledge such as window, door trim, or wainscoting. Group it with other Cat’s Meows to create your own memory of the special places you have visited or want to visit. Look for Casper, our black cat mascot, taking up residence within the design. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
