This evening the Seaford Town Council is set to vote on whether to put up a monument to former slave and abolitionist Harriet Tubman.
Jim Blackwell, a local historian told WBOC, that on October 22nd, 1856 Tubman passed through Seaford aboard the Steamer Kent a boat that came from Baltimore.
He said that she brought with her a slave named Tilly who was trying to escape from the south.
Blackwell said that Tubman brought Tilly to the only hotel in Seaford.
That plot of land is located at the Gateway Park across from the town hall.
