Point of Interest Details

The Macera family purchased this home at 125 West Green Street in the 1930s at the height of the Great Depression. The original owner was noted abolitionist and Quaker, Benjamin Halsey, who never turned away a runaway slave. As a result, the home is said to provide a sense of security and safety to those who enter it.
