For example, did you know that one Indiana home, in particular, was not just a major stop on the Underground Railroad, it was THE stop that meant, essentially, “If you’ve made it this far, you’ve made it.” Today, you can still visit it and learn about its extraordinary history. It’s the Levi and Catharine Coffin house, and it’s located in what’s now Fountain City, Indiana. Check it out and learn some of Indiana’s most amazing history from right where it happened:
