Grubb Estate

Located on both sides of Wood Street at the Riverfront Promenade, the Grubb estate included a mansion, two large brick Victorian cottages, a tannery, a brewery, and a brickyard.

The Grubbs were abolitionists, and tunnels between the houses and the riverbank were used to hide escaped slaves.

The mansion, "Delaware House," was used by a non-profity charity in the 1990's. Both cottages remain private residences.
