The Robbins House
The Robbins House is the only known historic site commemorating the legacy of a previously enslaved Revolutionary War veteran.
It is a one and a half story house built in the early 1800s. It was a two -family farmhouse occupied by one former slave, and by two grown children of another.
The first generation of descendants of a formerly enslaved African American Revolutionary War veteran, Caesar Robbins and by a fugitive slave Jack Garrison, lived there.
The Robbins House is located across from the North Bridge. It strives to inspire conversation, expand understanding, and contribute to a better society.
