Welcome!

Carrie Lane Chapman Catt Girlhood Home and Museum, located near Charles City, Iowa, is the historic site that provides an opportunity for guests to visit the home where Carrie's personality - and spunk - were formed by her family and community. This spunk helped Carrie persevere in her work for passage of the 19 th Amendment which gave women the right to vote.

Visitors are invited to tour Carrie's girlhood home, take a walk through the heritage apple orchard and native prairie, and wrap up with a visit to the interpretive center where you will learn more about Carrie's life.
