This National Historic Landmark and New York State Historic Site contains the home and final resting place of the Underground Railroad conductor and insurrectionist, who moved here in an attempt to establish a community of freed slaves and abolitionists.
While exploring upstate New York, I highly recommend going to the John Brown Farm State Historic Site, which was the home and final resting place for John Brown. John Brown was a famous abolitionist who fought and bravely died trying to free slaves from the south. Today, his home and resting place can be toured by the public and offers a glimpse into this man’s heroic life.
Walk through the rooms with artifacts and impressive exhibits, before heading outside to the tombstone of John Brown among the stunning grounds of the property. Visit this intriguing site year-round, Wednesdays through Saturdays, with reduced hours on Sundays.
Whether you enjoy a stroll here or dive deep into history, you won’t be disappointed.
We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Lake Placid.
