Trumbull County schoolteachers can earn five Contact Hours by 
arrangement with the Trumbull County Educational Service Center for 
participating in a Sutliff Museum One Day Bus Tour to the Hubbard House 
Museum in Ashtabula, Ohio, on July 8. The tour will include the house 
that was the “Terminus” of the Underground Railroad for many escaped 
slaves in the mid-eighteen hundreds. Also in the day’s schedule is time 
for lunch and shopping on Bridge Street in Ashtabula’s historic Harbor 
District. The afternoon will be topped off with a tour of the Ashtabula 
Marine Museum with picnic snacks on the grounds overlooking the Harbor.
The non-teaching public is also invited to go on the trip.
The Hubbard house includes the first floor restoration of the home of 
the Hubbard Family in 1841, complete with their furnishings, décor, 
paintings and memorabilia. The second floor is devoted to an 
Underground Railroad exhibit, and in the basement is a display of Civil 
War and American History artifacts. Docents who know the history of the 
House and its family’s participation in the Abolitionist Movement and 
the Underground Railroad will present background material useful for 
social studies, literature, and Ohio History teachers. Their 
information is fascinating to non-professionals, too. This is the 
second time the Sutliff has offered this tour because it was found to 
be so interesting and informative.
The cost of the trip is $42, which includes transportation, guides,
admission fees, snacks, and presentations and handouts of additional 
material on the Underground Railroad in Trumbull County. Lunch is on 
the individual’s own at a variety of eateries in the Harbor District.
