From the Guidebook:
Sarah Armstrong Wallis (1825-1905)
was a pioneer in the campaign for women's voting rights.
In 1870 she was elected president of California's first
statewide suffrage organization which in 1873 incorporated
as the California State Woman Suffrage Education Association.
The home she built on this site, Mayfield Farm, was a
center of suffrage activities attracting state and national
leaders such as Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton,
and Ulysses S. Grant.
