William H. Seward was one of the most influential figures in Am. politics in the 19th C. He was a governor of NY, a U.S. Senator and a Sec. of State to Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson. His wife Frances played an important role as his advisor, and she supported the Women`s Rights movement and hid runaway slaves in her basement. The House Museum includes period rooms and changing exhibitions. The museum also has an unmatched collection of political and travel souvenirs spanning Seward`s nearly 40-year career.
