I have been by it dozens of times and never had any idea as to the history of it. The guides were very knowledgeable and made the whole experience... More

This is a very good historic site and the guide was most interesting! Really went into the history and details of how the home played a significant role in the Underground Railroad. This family was very prominent and influential in their community. Apparently this was the northern most station on the Underground Railroad before they crossed Lake Erie and go... More

This house, which is now connected to the library, used to be the main meeting place for the abolitionists in Ashtabula. They met secretly here in the front room. There was nothing written down by the abolitionists, we were told by our guide, because it was against the law to harbor slaves. It is unknown where the slaves were hidden,... More

The Hubbard House is a wonderful place to visit and hear about how Ashtabula paid a high part in the Underground Railroad. The guides are very knowledgeable and willing to answer your questions. It is a great place for children to visit and learn a fun history lesson.

What a wonderfully kept and restored museum. We took a homeschool group for a tour and the guide could not have been more accommodating! They are open on a posted schedule, but very willing to accommodate groups. Guides are very knowledgeable and there are lots of original artifacts .

First, you can tour the house and not be a group, so ignore that comment. Two of us just walked in and a gentleman took us through. The house is interesting, and full of peeiod pieces. The tour guide had lots of i formation on the family. My problem is that there are no real connections to the URR. No... More

It was so informative. A lot of facts about the family who lived there and their part in the railroad. The people who run the place are friendly and knowledgeable. The house is also filled with many historical artifacts. The tour's leader was passionate about the history of the house and the times. Enjoyed my time there

We called to visit and were told that they only give tours to groups! We were a family of five and wanted to see this historic place. Inexcusable!

The Hubbard House is a marvelous museum that has just recently expanded to accommodate more exhibits and visitors. It contains Ashtabula history, stories and collections relevant to the role it played in the anti-slavery movement in Ohio, and Civil War exhibits. Worth the trip.
