  • William H. Seward was one of the most influential figures in 19th-century American politics. As governor of New York, U.S. senator and secretary of state to Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson, his impact was immeasurable. Seward and his wife, Frances, played important roles in both the anti-slavery and women’s rights movements and hid runaway slaves in their basement. The museum includes period rooms, rotating exhibitions, and a collection of political and travel souvenirs. A Path Through History attraction.
