About Hannah Howland
:'Abolitionist and Suffragist. Hannah (Tallcot) Howland, along with her husband Slocum, was an early advocate for women's suffrage and a prominent abolition. Slocum and Hannah Howland's home in Sherwood served as headquarters for regional abolitionists, as well as part of the Underground Railroad for escaped slaves en route to Canada. In 1996, the "Slocum and Hannah Howland House" in Sherwood was placed on the National Register of Historic Places for its significance in African-American history: its role in the Underground Railroad and Slocum and Hannah (Tallcot) Howland's efforts to abolish slavery."
