Abolitionist Frederick Douglass and suffragist Susan B. Anthony are both buried in Rochester’s Mt. Hope Cemetery. The pair met in Rochester during the mid 1800s, became close friends, and worked together on civil rights issues. Douglass, who lived in Rochester for 25 years, became a leader in the abolitionist movement to end slavery. Anthony, whose work ultimately gave women the right to vote, called Rochester home for 40 years.
