Harriet Tubman Home for the Aged
For more than a decade, the legendary Harriet Tubman (1820-1913) risked her life to lead hundreds of enslaved people out of the South to freedom in the North. Tubman also worked as a nurse and scout during the Civil War. Her Home for the Aged in Auburn, New York was her last major project. It is now a museum honoring Tubman's life and work.
