Sewall-Belmont House

The Sewall-Belmont House and Museum, on Capitol Hill, explores the evolving role of women and their contributions to society through the continuing, and often untold, story of women's pursuit for equality.

The building was the headquarters of the historic National Woman's Party and  the Washington home of its founder Alice Paul, who authored the Equal Rights Amendment.  Tours are Wednesdays through Sundays, at noon, 1 pm, 2 pm, and 3 pm.
