Celebrating the 90th Anniversary of the Women's Suffrage Movement, it includes rarely-seen ephemera from the early years of the suffrage movement with a special section dedicated entirely to the efforts women in Los Angeles who led the fight.

Heritage Square was founded in 1969 as a living history museum dedicated to telling the story of the development of Los Angeles. Eight historic structures saved from demolition and moved to the site provide a glimpse of Southern California as it looked 100 years ago.
