The Rochester Reform Trail is an NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for K-12 teachers.  The two one-week workshops (July 10-16 and July 17-23) explore the origins and development of the temperance, abolition and women's rights movements in Rochester, NY, by looking at the landmarks associated with Charles Finney, Frederick Douglass, and Susan B. Anthony, all Rochester residents at the height of American Reform.  NEH summer scholars will spend mornings in discussion with leading scholars of American Reform; in the afternoons they will visit significant sites associated with Rochester’s rich reform history, including the Susan B. Anthony House and Museum, the Seneca Falls Women’s Rights National Park, High Falls and the Broad Street Aqueduct, and Mount Hope Cemetery where both Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony are buried.  NEH Summer Scholars receive a $1200 stipend to cover their travel and accomodation costs.  Deadline for applications is March 1.  Please see website:
