Mission

The John Brown tannery site has been preserved through the ongoing efforts of interested people form Crawford County and elsewhere. The site is owned by the John Brown Heritage Association, a private non-profit organization established in 1974. It is a successor to other volunteer-based groups that began working to preserve the site as early as 1916.

The JBHA goals are to:

* Maintain the John Brown tannery site for public visitation

* Seek, document and preserve John Brown related artifacts and Information

* Dramatize the expansion of human freedom embodied in the antislavery movement and John Brown especially.

* Study and interpret early 19th century U.S. history as it relates to John Brown's life and times.
