Harriet Williams
Harriet Williams was a slave who lived in a small, one-story, wooden house on South St. Asaph Street near King Street from 1849 until 1855, and possibly until 1861. Samuel Lindsey, her owner, resided three doors away. During excavation for the courthouse in 1978, city archaeologists found an unusually large number of serving vessels that may have been first used by the Lindsey household, then given to Harriet Williams and used further before she discarded them.
