Upton House by Monnie Ryan

The Upton House, completed in 1840, is the oldest surviving house on historic Mahoning Avenue in Warren, Ohio (USA) – a section of town known as “Millionnaires’ Row.” The house became the temporary center for the National American Woman Suffrage Association in 1903, relocated to the city at the request of the wife of the home’s owner, Harriett Taylor Upton. Upton, whose mentor and friend was Susan B. Anthony, became a national leader of the women’s suffrage movement. In 1993, it was designated a National Historic Landmark.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

    Lovely and very interesting history!

  • Thank you, Dot! It’s not the prettiest house along Millionaires’ Row by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s got a great pedigree!

  • Thanks, Lori – done! I thought entries had to be houses that people actually live in today rather than museums or historical properties.
