Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 30, 1974):
Tubman (1821-1913), the most famous "conductor" on the Underground Railroad, personally led more than 300 slaves to freedom. She established this home for aged and indigent African Americans in 1908.

The Home is severely deteriorated.

A 2000 Save America's Treasures grant for $450,000 will help to restore the building.
