Underground Railroad residence clean up

This coming April 4th, there will be a work day at the Stephen and Harriet Myers Residence at 194 Livingston Avenue in Albany. There are some fallen tree lims in the rear yard that need to be cut up and tidily arranged or disposal.

There will also be clean up at 190 Livingston Avenue that was once the home of Abram Johnson, the father of John Johnson and Harriet Johnson. John Johnson built 194 Livingston. Harriet Johnson married Stephen Myers in 1827. This would be a good opportunity to celebrate some important history and contribute to its preservation.
