Intersections: The Underground Railroad in Chautauqua County

Chautauqua County has many stories to tell about the Freedom Movement.  A slave capture (very rare this far north of the Mason-Dixon Line), one of the country’s most active black women station operators and strong abolition support are all parts of the local story of the Underground Railroad history.
