Mayhew Cabin in Nebraska City is credited for its role in broadening the experience of filmmakers for the three-part PBS documentary “The Abolitionists.”
The film premiered on PBS Jan. 15 with a look at five major characters in the movement to end slavery in the United States.
The film offers a look inside some of the circumstances and life-changing events that drove many Americans to oppose the institution of slavery.
Frederick Douglass, William Garrison, Harriet Beecher Stowe and John Brown are among the characters featured.
Project-Black, an online news magazine, credits the Mayhew Cabin for broadening the story of John Brown and the abolitionists western movement.
“What this site has frozen in time ties directly to the PBS docudrama and plays directly into the events the series records as our nation fights to define its soul,” the Project-Black website says.
