Underground Railroad Heritage TrailStarr Clark was eulogized by Reverend M.D. Kinney as a man who believed in "impartial justice for all men, without regard to condition or color." Clark arrived in Mexico in 1832 and quickly became active in the abolitionist community. He wrote the first antislavery petition Oswego County sent to Congress, was a founder of the Oswego County Anti-Slavery Society, and made his tin shop a meeting place for local abolitionists. According to Clark family oral tradition, the house and the shop next door sheltered people escaping slavery.
