Robbins House

Share this post:

Home to the Garrison Family, Robbins House has no shortage of female anti-slavery activists. Susan Garrison was a charter member of the Concord Female Antislavery Society, hosting the second CFAS meeting in her home and being the only woman of color listed in existing CFAs records. Meanwhile, Ellen Garrison, who was born and raised in the house, was walking hand-in-hand with a white schoolmate in Concord parades at age 12 and in 1866 defied anti-segregation laws nearly a century before Rosa Parks. This and more has earned her her own exhibit in the Robbins House.
