Historic Underground Railroad SiteMany heroic men and women joined forces with others in a vast network that helped fugitive slaves secure freedom. Three groups of people were most active in the Underground Railroad movement in Ross County. They were the Presbyterians, the Quakers and Free People of Color. These courageous Ross Countians risked the loss of property, money and imprisonment if caught hiding or helping fugitives.
