The Tubman sites in Auburn consist of her residence, the Home for the Aged, Thompson Memorial AME Zion Church, and her gravesite. They are at three separate sites. The Tubman Home on South Street appears as an integrated single site with the residence and the Home for the Aged plus two modern buildings visible from the road. Deep in the rear of the property, out of sight from the road, is the foundation of the brick structure that Tubman named John Brown Hall. In this building, Tubman cared for aged and ill people. Thompson Memorial Church is about one mile away on the street adjacent to Fort Hill Cemetery, where Tubman's gravesite is located.
