Our newest exhibit, “The Lockwood Legacy: Belva Lockwood and the Fight for Equal Rights in America,” starts the weekend of Feb. 13th and the 14th! Running for president twice, and the first woman to argue before the U.S. Supreme Court, meet the woman who didn’t let anyone stop her in her fight for equality and justice during the late 19th century!

located on the first floor of the Outwater Building, 215 Niagara St, Lockport!This exhibit celebrates one of America’s most radical pioneers and activists during the 19th century. Using her knowledge of the law, she worked to secure woman suffrage, property law reforms, equal pay for equal work, and world peace. Belva Lockwood was a fierce, determined trailblazer who wouldn’t take “no” for an answer.
