Women’s Suffrage #22
8x8ft Barn Quilt - Village Trail
Note: Inside the LeRoy Village Hall. Can be viewed Mon-Fri 8am-4:30pm, closed federal holidays.
This barn quilt was placed in the Village Hall in 2017 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York State. The bold colors of purple, white and gold are the colors adopted by the Women’s National Party in 1913. The purple is for loyalty, the white is for purity and the gold is for “the Flame of Freedom’s Fires.”
The first woman to vote in LeRoy was Delia Phillips who came to this building to cast her vote on April 2, 1918. A historic marker was placed in front of this building to commemorate this historic event.
