The Johnson House, built in 1768, served as a stop for fugitive slaves who were making their way North on the underground railroad during the 19th Century. It is the only known structure of this type in Philadelphia that is currently open to the pubic. The Johnson House is presently owned and operated by the Germantown Historic Trust and offers interpretative programs in American history as well as supporting resources to the public.
