The name change comes with an expanded range of exhibits and programs designed to bring visitors in touch with Anthony and the women's rights movement she helped found.

Hughes says the mission of the Anthony Museum and House will include greater online outreach to expand on the hundreds of thousands of online visits they now host each year on their website.
