Through August 26. Before becoming nationally known as a U.S. Senator and Secretary of State, William Henry Seward moved to Auburn, New York to practice law under Judge Elijah Miller and married Miller's daughter, France, in 1824. This exhibit showcases items from the Seward family's early years including William Henry and Frances's marriage, the experiences of their children growing up in a politically charged household, Seward's two terms as Governor of New York, and the life of Frances Seward - the politically-minded woman who shared her opinions with her husband while spending most of her time at home in Auburn.
