A caption on the back of the photograph reads, "McGinn House, 79 W 4th St., Chillicothe." A sign on the door reads "Kern & Bersch" This is actually 71 West Fourth Street in Chillicothe, Ohio. This two-story red brick building was built in 1854 and is currently the David Nickens Heritage Center, which exhibits African-American heritage and culture. The three permanent exhibits are: The Underground Railroad, African American Women in the 19th Century and the Black Church in America. The area where the home is located is part of the National Register of Historic Places.
