Significance: The Sewall-Belmont House, built ca. 1800 for Robert Sewall in the newly formed city of Washington, has been home to the National Women's Party since 1929. Sewall's brick federal-period town house, with its center-hall Georgian plan, is one of the oldest standing residences on Capitol Hill, and includes a kitchen wing that predates the main structure...As the only extant structure associated with the National Woman's Party, the Sewall-Belmont House continues to serve as an active headquarters, as well as museum and research library. In 1974, it was designated a National Historic Landmark for its historical connections to Alice Paul and the woman's movement.
