Alice Paul

Paulsdale is a farmhouse on Hooton Road in Mount Laurel where Alice Paul was born. Alice Paul was a famous American woman who believed that men and women were equal. She organized groups throughout the United States to work for women's rights. One of the important rights she helped fight for was the right for women to vote. Paulsdale will become a center for leadership training for women and girls.

"Sunnyside," on Hooton Road, was built in 1838. At that time, people said it was the "finest house in the neighborhood."
