Sewall-Belmont House, and apparently Nina Allender's cartoons, become National Monument

Today, the House, and presumably the cartoons, became a National Monument, under the Park Service.

Here's the Washington Post on it, and here's the White House, which says, "help preserve an extensive archival collection that documents the history, strategies, tactics and accomplishments of the movement to secure women's suffrage and equal rights in the United States and across the globe." so I guess the cartoons were transferred too.

The new Belmont-Paul Monument is well-worth visiting. I saw it with my daughter in 2012 and was quite impressed by it.
