The Hubbard House stands as an excellent example and depiction of the life and times of Connecticut Western Reserve during the middle third of the 19th century. The house boasts of 3 distinct features including the circa 1841 home of William and Catharine Hubbard on the 1st floor, the Underground Railroad exhibit area found on the 2nd floor, and the Civil War and Americana exhibit area in the basement.

The Hubbard House was built in 1840 to 1841. The structure makes use of bricks made of clay which were dug from the banks of Lake Erie. The house had a series of owners and it served a variety of purposes including a women?s social club, a temporary kindergarten, and a park and recreation department building. It soon entered a state of disrepair. It was rescued by a small group that included Thomas Huntington Hubbard, one of the Hubbard descendants.

The home was restored to its1840's elegant state. There may still be parts that need to be refurbished but the house is furnished with period pieces and unique Ashtabula County pieces. Visitors can take self-guided and volunteer-guided tours during the regular museum hours.
