History

This is the Horatio Seymour House, the 1811 birthplace of twice Governor of New York State and Democratic Candidate for President against Ulysses S. Grant. Seymour was born in Pompey Hill,to Henry Seymour, a politician and a merchant who opened a successful general store in Pompey, and  Mary Ledyard Forman Seymour, the daughter of General Jonathan Forman. Seymour was one of six children who lived in this house with their parents. His sister Julia Catherine became the wife of Roscoe Conkling, a New York Senator. At the age of 10, Seymour moved from this home with the rest of his family to Utica so his father, Henry, could supervise the middle section of the Erie Canal.
