An official Path Through History Site! The Harriet Tubman Home, Inc., is located on 26 acres and includes four buildings. Tubman, known as the Moses of Her People, was a courageous fighter who delivered hundreds of slaves to freedom on her Underground Railroad and promoted black education, social betterment & women`s rights. In 1857, she moved to Auburn where she was provided a two-story brick home by William H. Seward, the US Senator from New York. As a conductor on the Underground Railroad-a network of abolitionists that helped slaves escape to freedom-she made a dozen trips south over a period of 11 years. Tubman died in 1913 at her South Street property, and is buried at Fort Hill Cemetery. The present-day site includes a Welcome Center and the Harriet Tubman Home for the Aged.
