Known as “The Moses Of Her People,” Tubman settled in Auburn after the Civil War and operated this home for aged and indigent blacks. As a conductor on the Underground Railroad-a network of abolitionists that helped slaves escape to freedom-she made a dozen trips south over a period of 11 years. Tubman died in 1913 at her South Street property, and is buried at Fort Hill Cemetery.
