DescriptionSeneca Falls is known as the birthplace of the women's rights movement. Notable former residents include Amelia Bloomer, who popularized the undergarments that bore her name, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, organizer of the first Women's Rights Convention and an early feminist leader. The nation's first women's rights convention was held in Seneca Falls in 1848.
Several wineries lie within a 20-mile area of scenic SR 89, known as the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, which skirts the western shore of Cayuga Lake; phone (607) 869-4281 or (800) 684-5217. As its name suggests, the Cayuga-Seneca Canal connects Cayuga and Seneca lakes and passes through diverse landscapes. The double locks at Seneca Falls create a 49-foot change in elevation.
