A VICTORY FOR THE COMMUNITY!

Brooklyn Abolitionist Home Gains Historic Landmark Status After Decades-Long Battle, Groundswell of Community Endorsements

 

After years of struggle led by Brooklyn grassroots organizers and activists, on Tuesday Mayor Bill di Blasio will announce that the Landmarks and Preservation Commission of New York City plans to confer historic landmark status on the “Truesdell House” at 227 Duffield Street in Downtown Brooklyn.

The house at 227 Duffield St – which has been renamed 227 Abolitionist Place – was home to Harriet and Thomas Lee Truesdell in the 1850s. The Truesdells were radical anti-slavery activists and hosted other prominent abolitionists in their home. Historians believe that the building is a hotbed of potential research about the Underground Railroad, as many families on and around Abolitionist Place were active in helping to liberate enslaved people.

Friends of Abolitionist Place hopes to turn the building into the Heritage Center at 227 Abolitionist Place, which would teach visitors about the complex history of abolitionist movements in Brooklyn through interactive learning experiences and artist residencies.
