This sleepy town was founded by a group of Quakers from North Carolina in the 1790s. It became a hub for abolitionist activity in the area leading up to the Civil War, and served as a stop on the Underground Railroad. Stop in JacqueÂ’s Whistle Stop Café for the signature chargrilled chicken and homemade lemonade in a rustic but lively setting. Locals also rave about the desserts. The walls are covered in vintage pieces and antiques, and each one is for sale.
