The Hack stand of Reuben Ruby, corner of Temple and Federal Streets. Ruby (1798-1878) was Portland's foremost African American Anti-Slavery activist and underground railroad conductor. In 1826, Ruby helped publish a protest in the newspaper against the treatment of "some six hundred African Americans" in the white houses of worship in Portland. In 1832 he escorted William Lloyd Garrison around Portland in one of his carriages, introducing him to twenty-one black anti-slavery activists, and hosting him at the Abyssinian Church, which Ruby helped to found and finance.
