6056 South Street Road, Fleming. Harriet Tubman (1822-1913) escaped from slavery in Maryland in 1849 and returned about 13 times to bring more than 70 people from slavery to freedom. In 1859, she purchased this 7-acre farm from Francis Miller and her husband U.S. Secretary of State William Henry Seward. Tubman lived here for the rest of her life. Her wood frame house burned in 1880 and replaced with a brick house built by Tubman’s second husband Nelson Davis and family members in 1883. The residence and barn are currently under restoration and closed to the public. 6056 South Street Rd. Fleming, N.Y.
