The Seward House was the home of one of the most important political, social and philanthropic
figures of the United States. Seward worked toward social justice by making better housing for blacks, helping escapees on the Underground Railroad (along with associate, Harriet Tubman), an confidant of Abraham Lincoln in who was also wounded in the murderous attack on Lincoln and who, later would purchase Alaska from Russia.
This is the one of the best Museum houses I have ever visited. In fact, the family left everything (including the regally set dining table) as if they had just left. The staff is still sorting though the collection.
