George & Rebecca Barnes Foundation
George Barnes, a young English immigrant, grows up to be an abolitionist, philanthropist, industrialist and community leader in Syracuse. He and his wife, Rebecca, built the first house on James Street in 1853, and it is the only one remaining from that era. They hosted meetings in their home with such notables as Rev. Samuel May, Gerrit Smith and Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her husband Henry. Later, their daughter (Bessie) and her husband, Judge Frank H. Hiscock hosted president Taft at the house. ...visit us for more.
