Inscription
Built in 1768 for John Johnson. This was home to three generations of a Quaker family who worked to abolish slavery and improve living conditions for freed African Americans. In the 1850s the house was a station on the Underground Railroad. Here and in the smaller buildings on the property, men and women escaping slavery found shelter on their way to freedom.
