We called to visit and were told that they only give tours to groups! We were a family of five and wanted to see this historic place. Inexcusable!

The Hubbard House is a marvelous museum that has just recently expanded to accommodate more exhibits and visitors. It contains Ashtabula history, stories and collections relevant to the role it played in the anti-slavery movement in Ohio, and Civil War exhibits. Worth the trip.
