Susan B. Anthony Square Park
In the center of the Susan B. Anthony Preservation District is Susan B. Anthony Square Park. Created in the 1830s and originally known as Mechanic’s Square, the park was renamed Madison Park in 1875. It was redesigned in 1904 by the Olmstead Brothers. This central green is one of six neighborhood-based park sites in Rochester.
In 1971, the Square was re-dedicated to Susan B. Anthony. In 2001, local artist, Pepsy Kettavong, created the “Let’s Have Tea” larger-than-life bronze sculpture honoring Susan B. Anthony & Frederick Douglass. Visitors are encouraged to touch and interact with the sculpture, as was the artist’s intention.
