Benjamin Lundy House

The Benjamin Lundy House is a National Historic Landmark in Mount Pleasant, Ohio. It was home in 1820 to abolitionist Benjamin Lundy, where he established the influential antislavery newspaper The Genius of Universal Emancipation, one of the first antislavery publications in the United States.

As of late 2009 the three-story house stands in extreme disrepair. Ivy is degrading the original masonry, as well as rotting the wooden window and door frames. The interior has also degraded due to disuse and lack of maintenance.
