The Tiny Delaware Town Of Odessa Was Once A Stop Along The Underground Railroad

Did you know that the town of Odessa was one of the most important stops along the Underground Railroad? Hundreds of runaway slaves escaped to freedom with help from Delawareans throughout the state. The efforts in New Castle County were coordinated thanks to Harriet Tubman and Thomas Garrett – two of the most famous conductors of the Underground Railroad in Delaware.
