From Wikipedia:

The Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument (formerly Sewall House (1800-1929), Alva Belmont House (1929-1972), and the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum (1972-2016)) is a historic house and museum of the U.S. women's suffrage and equal rights movements located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, D.C., in the United States.

Since 1929, it has served as headquarters of the National Woman's Party, a key political organization in the fight for women's suffrage. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, designated a National Historic Landmark in 1974. From 1972 to 2016, the Sewall-Belmont National Historic Site was an affiliated unit of the National Park Service. In 2016, President Barack Obama designated it a National Monument, affording it more protection, visibility, and likely more funding.
