Did you know that Historic Strawberry Mansion...

Did you know that Historic Strawberry Mansion founder Judge William Lewis was a well-known lawyer and abolitionist? His obituary in the August 19, 1819 Poulson’s American Daily Advertiser described him as such: "A statesman of the Revolution, jealous of liberty himself, he wished its enjoyment to all, and while many around him were trafficking in their fellowmen, Lewis was engaged in breaking their shackles asunder."
