Ohio Fun Fact
William Hubbard was an abolitionist and operator of a stop on the Underground Railroad in the years before the American Civil War. Around 1840, Hubbard built a house in Ashtabula. Hubbard's new home became an important stop on the Underground Railroad in Ohio. Runaway slaves and conductors on the Underground Railroad referred to Hubbard's home as "Mother Hubbard's Cupboard" and as "The Great Emporium." From surviving records, it appears that all of the African Americans assisted by Hubbard managed to escape to Canada successfully.
