History

History information is some background and history about the location. This is meant to be a basic summary. Below the history records you will find sources in which you can click on to find out more information. There may be multiple history records per location.


The Upton House, built by General Simon Perkins is the third oldest surviving house on Mahoning Avenue in Warren, Ohio. Tax records indicate the house was completed in 1840 in the popular Egyptian Revival style. His son, Henry Perkins, sold the house to Ezra B. Taylor 32 years later, and the Taylor family took possession in 1873.

In 1887, Congressman Taylor deeded the house to Harriet "for love and affection." It remained her home for nearly 60 years, until 1931 when, at the age of 76, she lost it in a sheriff's sale.

The Upton House became the temporary center of the National American Woman Suffrage Association in 1903, when the organization moved to Warren, Ohio by Mrs. Upton's request. In 1905 the headquarters relocated in the west wing of the new Trumbull County Courthouse and remained there until late 1909 when it was moved to New York City. Under Harriet's direction, and with the help of Elizabeth Hauser of Girard, Ohio the NWSA grew from a crusade to a strong, well integrated organization under which victory was achieved in 1920. Many celebrities visited the Upton House during this period.

In 1989, a local effort was begun to save the Upton House from possible demolition because of its prominence with the national suffrage movement. After extensive restoration, the Upton House achieved National Historic Landmark status in 1993. The restoration of the house and gardens continues today.

Stories

Stories are just that. Stories and personal accounts that have been reported about the location.


We rented this location on several occasions to have our simulated Victorian wake events. This location was perfect for this event and we love the building very much. After one of the times we rented the facility and the event was over. We cleaned up and still had a few hours left before we needed to turn in the keys, so the team decided to do a little investigating in the building. During that few hour investigation, we recorded many EVPs throughout various locations within the building. Please check back later as we will be adding them in the evidence section.

In 1993, the Upton House achieved National Historic Landmark status after being saved from demolition and is now the home of the Upton Association. This association petitioned to have Harriet's ashes brought home from California and on October 8, 2011, an interment ceremony was held in the backyard of the Upton House. Harriet's ashes were buried in her garden and original grave marker placed there.
