"There is a word sweeter than mother, home or heaven. That word is Liberty!" reads Matilda Joslyn Gage's tombstone. Gage worked throughout her life (1826-1898) to extend liberty and equality to women and to those held in slavery.
In her childhood, Gage had watched her parents shelter people fleeing slavery. She, in turn, made this house a stop on the Underground Railroad. After she and her husband Henry moved here in 1854, Gage joined the Underground Railroad network run by the Reverend Jermain W. Loguen and his wife Caroline, the African American conductors of the main station in Syracuse.
Gage attacked all inequality, whether based on race or sex. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were frequent visitors. Gage collaborated with them to found the National Woman Suffrage Association and published the organization's official newspaper from this house. She also supported the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) struggle to win legal recognition of their treaty rights.
