Broadway star buys home he says was built by slaves, promises to ‘fill it with love’

Broadway star Robert Hartwell shared the historical significance of his latest purchase, a home that was built by slaves in 1820.

Hartwell, who starred in “Hello Dolly!” and “Motown the Musical,” posted a photo on Instagram of himself smiling in front of his new home and opened up about what it means to him.

The two-story abode was newly constructed back in 2018 when Clarkson first snapped the property up for about $3.2 million. Somewhat ironically, Clarkson purchased the lot after he was traded from the Lakers to the Cleveland Cavaliers and initially put it on the market in 2019 for $3.35 million, when he was traded again to the Utah Jazz.
