Susan B. Anthony Statue Installed in Adams

Staff ReportsiBerkshires
ADAMS, Mass. — There was supposed to be fanfare and celebration, speeches and parades. 
 
But then came COVID-19. 
 
The town of Adams was set to commemorate native daughter Susan B. Anthony and the centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment securing women's right to vote. The yearlong observance began in February with the serenading of Anthony on her 200th birthday.
 
The Adams Suffrage Centennial Celebration Committee had been working for more than two years to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote along with Anthony's bicentennial. The celebration was going to culminate in August with a weekend's worth of activities including live music, a food truck festival, fireworks and a parade all leading up to the unveiling and dedication on the town common of a statue of the Adams born suffragette made by world-renowned sculptor Brian Hanlon.
