The Rochester Reform Trail, a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for K-12 teachers, will host two week-long workshops in July exploring the antebellum reform movement at the College at Brockport, State University of New York, in Brockport, New York.

Landmark visits held during the workshops July 19-25 and July 26-Aug. 1 will include an Erie Canal packet-boat cruise and field trips to Women’s Rights National Historical Park, the Susan B. Anthony House and Museum and local sites associated with long-time Rochester resident Frederick Douglass (including Douglass and Anthony’s gravesites at Mount Hope Cemetery).

The application deadline is March 2. NEH summer scholars will receive a stipend to offset travel and accommodation expenses. Click here for more information.
