Benjamin Hanby House

This watercolor painting was given to my mother, Grace L. Stallings, by its creator, Lora Robinson.  The note [lower left corner] reads

"Hanby House
150 West Main Street
Westerville [OH]
Built 1848 [1846?]
Benjamin Russel Hanby
b. 1833 – d. 1867"

The Hanby House was one of numerous "stations" on the Underground Railroad.  To read about Benjamin Hanby, click here.
