Jeremiah Brown House, Historic Renovation (Design - Build)
Hudson, Ohio is well known for its historic role in the anti-slavery movement and specifically, as a final stop on the Underground Railroad. This is the home of Jeremiah Brown, brother of legendary abolitionist, John Brown. According to the Hudson Historical Society, "Jeremiah stored weapons for his brother on this site and local tradition says the dry cistern under the back addition was often used to hide slaves."
