Women like the famous Harriet Tubman, played a critical role in the anti -slavery movement.  Here in Albany, Harriet Myers and husband Stephen were prominent abolitionists whose house on Livingston Ave in Albany was a stop on the Under Ground Railroad.  This zoom lecture will be led by Meyers Residence directors, Paul and MaryLiz Stewart who were the driving force behind the preservation of this Greek revival townhouse built in the mid-19th Century.   We will reflect on why women were so passionate about abolition and the operation of  safe houses for slaves fleeing north.

Included for session participants is an expert led tour of the Myer Residence on Sat. April 10th at 12:30 pm.  This house is listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and the Underground Railroad Heritage Trail.

Sign up and pay on the WCA website. A waiting list will be established and other tours scheduled, based on interest.
