Beginning in 1857 Lucy Colman lived at 33 Chatham Street. She still appears in a city directory from 1864. During these years Colman taught at -- and quickly scuttled -- a segregated school, and emerged as a controversial speaker for woman's rights.
Chatham Street no longer exists, apparently a casualty of the I-490 highway and "urban renewal." Its last vestige seems to be a driveway between two industrial buildings on Central Avenue.
