Join us and Clara Silverstein for an online tour of the Jackson Homestead and Museum, a federal-style house built in 1809 for Timothy Jackson and his family. Located in Newton, Massachusetts, the Jackson Homestead and Museum is one of two historic house museums that comprise Historic Newton and is now home to exhibitions on the history of food, farming, and family life; slavery and anti-slavery; and notable people and events in Newton. This tour will focus specifically on the complex legacy of slavery and abolitionism at the homestead, including it's history as a stop on the Underground Railroad.
