67 South Street, Auburn (Cayuga County) is an historic nineteenth century mansion that was once home to Dr. Allen Macy Dulles, a leading Presbyterian theologian and head of the Auburn Theologi- cal Society. Dr. Dulles purchased 67 South Street in 1904 from the Woodruffs—a family of local merchants.

Dr. Dulles and his wife raised five children in the house, two of which became prominent figures in national diplomacy. John Dulles was the Secretary of State under President Eisenhower and his brother Allen Dulles was the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency under President Eisenhower. Both were instrumental in crafting the nation’s Cold War policy. In 1931, shortly after the death of Dr. Dulles, his widow sold the property to New York State to serve as Auburn Correctional Facility’s superintendent’s residence.

Thereafter known as the “warden’s home,” 67 South Street served in that capacity for nearly 80 years during which it became a hub for state and local gatherings and community activities. The Au- burn Correctional Facility, the state’s second prison, was founded in 1816 and is a maximum-security facility.

The Au- burn Correctional Facility, the state’s second prison, was founded in 1816 and is a

Originally built c. 1840, the house received its fashionable Queen Anne-style appearance sometime around 1880, with early twen-

tieth-century Craftsmen embellishments. Original architectural features are abundant throughout the interior and exterior of the

building, including the asymmetrical façade with wrap-around porch and porte-cochére.

Interior features include tiled and marble

fireplaces, hand carved paneling, moldings, and balustrades, built-in cabinetry and book cases, and stain glass windows. Also featured with the property is a nineteenth-century, two-story carriage barn set back behind the house.

The property is situated within the fashionable historic section of the City of Auburn known as the South Street Area Historic Dis- trict, which also includes the William Seward House, also on South Avenue, and the Willard-Case Mansion, now home to the Cayuga Museum. The district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is architecturally significant as a largely intact residential district that reflects Auburn’s nineteenth century prosperity and prominence.

Auburn, located in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State, was a national center of social change in the nineteenth and twenti- eth century, fueled largely by upstate New York’s religious movements. Auburn was home to famed abolitionist and Underground Railroad activist Harriet Tubman, who purchased property in Auburn from William Seward and provided shelter there for her family

and escaped slaves.

Auburn also contributed to the rise of the women’s suffrage movement and prison reform. The sale of 67 South

 

Street provides a unique opportunity to own a piece of Auburn’s historic legacy.
