Hubbard House Underground Railroad Museum

The Ohio Valley is well known as a major location on the Underground Railroad. Present time efforts to register, renovate, and maintain these locations for modern times is essential in keeping the history alive.

The Hubbard House Underground Railroad Museum is one of these locations. As stated on the website:

"Located in historic Ashtabula Harbor, Ohio, Hubbard House overlooks the south shore of Lake Erie and is an easy one-hour drive from Cleveland and Youngstown, Ohio, and Erie, Pennsylvania.

The home is an excellent example of life in the Connecticut Western Reserve in the middle third of the 19th century. There are three distinct features of the Hubbard House: the circa 1841 home of William and Catharine Hubbard on the first floor, the Underground Railroad exhibit area on the second floor; and the Civil War and Americana exhibit area in the basement."
Visit and transport yourself into the past and learn about the lives of William and Catharine Hubbard.
