Built by dedicated abolitionists George and Rebecca Barnes in 1853, this mansion was a gathering place for such notables as Rev. Samuel Joseph May (who actually presided over the marriage of George and Rebecca); Garrett Smith; Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her husband, Henry.

Oral history supports that they hid slaves in their home during their long journey north, often having them hide in the basement and carriage house until safe passage could be found.

The George & Rebecca Barnes Foundation was established to preserve this opulent, historic mansion which is the original home of dedicated abolitionists George and Rebecca Barnes. It is currently open Saturday morning for walk-in tours or tours for other times may be arranged.
