The Seward House Museum, located in Auburn, NY, is a 204 year old historic house which interprets the story of the Seward family, most notably William Henry Seward, who served as Secretary of State in the Lincoln and Johnson administration, and his wife, Frances, who helped use the house as a stop on the Underground Railroad.
Zachary Finn is the Education and Outreach Coordinator at the SHM. He received his BA in History from Lycoming College, and his MA in American History from SUNY Brockport. Prior to working at the SHM, Zachary worked at the Genesee Country Village Museum.
