seward house

William H. Seward, Lincoln’s secretary of state, lived with his father-in-law near Weedsport, N.Y., about 50 miles each of Rochester.

Auburn, the home the Sewards eventually inherited, is now a house museum displaying original items from the Seward family.

Despite his political career taking him far beyond Weedsport, Auburn is the only house Seward ever owned.
