Overview

Faith, integrity, class, passion, trust and nobility is what Lewis Hayden House stands for. Lewis Hayden's life story has been and will always be an inspiration to all. He was a slave, who fought slavery, a businessman and also a republican party worker. He and his wife made their home a kind of rescue camp for slaves by converting it into an underground railroad station. The Haydens were brave enough to challenge the bounty hunters and told them that they would rather die protecting the ex-slaves, than surrendering them to the hunters. Thus, the house has been a symbol of hope and peace for a lot of African Americans. Pay your respects by visiting the Lewis Hayden House, where the very atmosphere spells the word courage.
