Ross-Homestead

While not convenient to the rest of the sites on the African American Heritage Trail the Ross Homestead at 123 Meadow St. is worth a special trip. At one time the Agricultural Department of the NAEI, the farm was purchased by Austin Ross in 1847 and is a well documented station on the UGRR. In 2002 it became a site on the National Park Service’s Underground Railroad Network to Freedom. Now a private home, it is not open to the public.
