- The Washington Times - Sunday, October 27, 2002

Location: The Sewall-Belmont House and Museum is at 144 Constitution Ave. NE, Washington.

Parking and directions: On-street parking is difficult to find in this neighborhood. Save yourself the headache and take Metro's Red Line to Union Station or park there. Exiting Union Station at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Second Street, turn right at Second Street and go about three blocks. Continue past the Senate parking lot and Hart Senate Office Building (on the right) until you reach the intersection of Second Street NE and Constitution Avenue NE. The house is on the right, at the corner of these cross-streets. Use the entrance on Constitution Avenue.

Hours: The house is open for tours from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and from noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays.

Children's programs: From 10 to 11:30 a.m. on the third Saturday of every month, children can become Sewall-Belmont House "Young Suffragists." Participants will make protest banners and sashes, learn about how women won the right to vote and hear tales of women's heroism throughout American history. A $5 fee is required for supplies; refreshments are provided and reservations are requested.

Information: Call 202/546-1210. The Web site is www.sewallbelmont.org.
