Tioga County legislature chair Martha Sauerbrey said the event will honor those who sacrificed and fought to give women the right to vote.

Tours of the historic courthouse will be offered from noon to 4 p.m.

The official program will start a 2:30 Saturday afternoon with a series of speakers, including a woman portraying Susan B. Anthony.

Tioga County historian Emma Sedore said Anthony made a brief visit to Owego in 1894. She stayed overnight at a home on Front Street in the village.

The Tioga Suffrage Celebration is billed as the showcase event for the year-long series of activities in the county.
