The James and Lydia Canning Fuller House in Skaneateles, New York is a historic house, which on three occasions was used as part of the Underground Railway.[2]

James married Lydia Charleton in 1815 in Bristol at the Friends Meeting House.[2] This was the same year as the house was built in 1815.[1]

James Canning Fuller was the secretary of the Skaneateles Anti-Slavery Society in 1838. He was a delegate to the World's Anti-Slavery Convention in 1840 in London.[3]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.[1]
