Harriet Tubman Home Karen Hill Doug Armstrong gave a tour of the home of abolitionist Harriet Tubman, where Ms. Tubman housed more than a dozen people as part of the Underground Railroad, and spoke about her role in the abolitionist movement. In 1857, Harriet Tubman moved with her parents from St. Catharine’s, Ontario, Canada, to Auburn, New York. She was provided a two story brick home on the outskirts of Auburn by her friend, Senator William H. Seward. He eventually sold the property to Tubman, an illegal transaction at the time.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in Syracuse, New York, from September 19-25 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Time Warner Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. close
