Seneca Falls (WSYR-TV) - The federal government shutdown is not just putting hundreds of thousands of federal workers out of work, but it is also impacting Central New Yorkers and visitors to the region.
National Parks and historic sites across the country are closed, including the Women's Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls.
Seneca Falls is considered by many the birthplace of the women's rights movement as the first women's convention was held there in 1848.
Like nearly 400 national parks, the Women’s Rights Museum has a sign on the door explaining why it's closed.
The Montezuma Wildlife Refuge and Fort Stanwix in Rome have also closed because of the shutdown.
