This church building, completed in 1878, was once a stop on the Underground Railroad, a network of houses, buildings, and “conductors” that helped escaped slaves move north to freedom. The Quaker congregation kept a nearby cave (since filled in) stocked with provisions for fugitive slaves, and later for volunteers enroute to join the Union Army in the Civil War.
