Lamar Alexander says Hermitage Hotel Designation As National Historic Landmark Will Help Students Learn About Women’s Suffrage Movement

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.)  said that designating Nashville’s Hermitage Hotel as the Trump Administration’s first National Historic Landmark is “a fitting tribute to Tennessee’s decisive role in giving women the right to vote.”

“The Trump Administration’s decision to designate this National Historic Landmark cements the hotel’s legacy as one of the most prominent sites in the suffrage movement,” Senator Alexander said. “In the summer of 1920, the Hermitage Hotel was movement headquarters as suffragists persuaded legislators to make Tennessee the 36th and final state to ratify the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, securing the right of women to vote nationwide.”

Historic Hermitage Hotel was movement headquarters when Tennessee became final state required to ratify the 19th Amendment.
