The Governor’s Mansion Foundation Commemorates the Centennial of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 2020.

The suffrage recreation will be during the normal tour times on Wednesdays (later dates to be announced) at the Washington State Governor’s Mansion. Tour attendees will meet costumed Representatives Frances Haskell and Anna Colwell along with long-time suffragists Emma Smith DeVoe and Carrie Hill who were present for the ratification. Tour visitors will also receive a special flyer (see attachments on this page) about the 19th Amendment which empowered women nationally to vote in 1920 and Washington’s role in the suffrage movement. This program is supported by a grant from the Washington State Women’s Commission and the Washington State Historical Society through the Votes for Women Centennial Grant Program.
