Women’s Rights Park to host solar eclipse event

The Women’s Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls announced a special event to observe the total solar eclipse on April 8, from 1 to 4 p.m. This free public gathering will be held at the Elizabeth Cady Stanton House, offering a unique opportunity to experience a rare celestial phenomenon. The event is designed to welcome families and visitors of all ages, with special activities planned on the lawn of the historic house.

In addition to hosting the viewing event, the park will provide free eclipse viewing glasses to attendees, ensuring a safe experience for everyone. Children participating in the event will have the chance to earn a limited edition Junior Ranger badge specifically designed for the eclipse.

This eclipse is particularly notable as only 27 out of 425 national parks across the United States will witness the totality of this event. For Seneca Falls, this marks a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, as it will be the only total solar eclipse visible in the area for the next two centuries, making it a significant occasion for the community and visitors alike.
