Harriet Tubman’s home in Auburn, New York will be preserved for visitors to learn about her life after the Civil War.

The Auburn, New York home of Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman has formally been established as the 414th unit of the National Park System. U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell was joined by U.S. Senators Charles Schumer, Kristen Gillibrand, U.S. Congressman John Kato, as well as community and park partners at a signing ceremony on January 10.

The park is in Auburn, New York, where Harriet Tubman lived, worshipped, and cared for family members and other formerly enslaved people who sought a safe haven in the North.

“It is our great privilege to share in the stewardship of two national historical parks devoted to commemorating the life and work of Harriet Tubman,” said Secretary Jewell.

“These two parks preserve and showcase a more complete history of one of America’s pivotal humanitarians who, at great personal risk, did so much to secure the freedom of hundreds of formerly enslaved people. Her selfless commitment to a more perfect union is testament that one determined person—no matter her station in life or the odds against her—can make a tremendous difference.”
