Description Paulsdale, in Mount Laurel Township, Burlington County, New Jersey, United States, was the birthplace and childhood home of Alice Paul, a major leader in the Women's suffrage movement in the United States. Paulsdale was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1991.The Paul family purchased 173acre and the 1840 farmhouse around 1883. During the 1950s, Paulsdale was divided into two parcels: 167acre of farmland and the remaining 6acre which included the house and farm buildings. Both parcels were sold in the 1950s. The larger became a housing development, the smaller was a private residence until it was purchased by the Alice Paul Institute in 1990.The house has been restored to the condition when Alice Paul lived there. It now serves as a historic house museum and a home for the Institute. The purpose of the institution is to make sure Alice Paul's legacy doesn't die out by enhancing the knowledge of future generations on the topic of human rights.
