While researching a musical about Briarcliff Manor, Carmino Ravosa found that in 1919, Carrie Chapman Catt - a suffragist known for women's rights and responsible for the 19th Amendment - owned a 17-acre farm in Briarcliff. Ravosa had featured Catt in a musical, Seneca Falls, about the first women's rights convention, held in that city in 1848. Ravosa filed a successful application to have Chapman's farm, Juniper Ledge, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
