Details

At the John Brown Farm State Historic Site in Lake Placid, see the home and gravesite of the ardent abolitionist best known for his 1850 raid on Harpers Ferry, Virginia and the famous folk song that immortalized his death. Following Brown`s execution, his body was returned to North Elba and was buried in front of his home on December 8, 1859. The remains of several of Brown`s followers, who fought and died at Harper`s Ferry, were moved to this small graveyard in 1899.
