Johnson House Historic Site, a National Historic Landmark and Underground Railroad station, is a museum and Center for Social Advocacy that represents what “everyday people have done and can do to make a difference in their community and beyond.” The Quaker Johnson Family were active leaders in the anti-slavery movement, working to abolish slavery and institute progressive social and racial justice changes. Working closely together, abolitionists – free and enslaved Africans and whites – assisted escaped slaves as they fought to gain their freedom.
