Brooklyn Home Believed to Be Part of Underground Railroad
Local activists are fighting to save a home in Brooklyn, believed to be a part of the Underground Railroad. Half a block from a gym, a few doors down from a new hotel and next to a brewpub with a sign boasting of 'atomic wings,' lies a modest brick building that some believe was part of the Underground Railroad. It was built in 1848, and in a few weeks, it could be a pile of rubble. The building located at 227 Duffield St. is the last remaining original structure on a block co-named 'Abolitionist Place,' due to several anti-slavery activists who lived there during the mid-1800s.
