Visitors have shown particular interest in the stories related to our local suffragists involvement to gain the right to vote for women. Local participants are being honored by the placement of a sign at gravesites at the Sebastopol Memorial Lawn, Green Valley Cemetery, and the Forestville Cemetery. Signs will be in place from July to November 2021. For more on Suffrage Headquarters, click here .
