This Historic House In Iowa Was Once A Stop On The Underground Railroad

Iowa is full of fascinating history and buildings. The home of Reverend George B. Hitchcock in Lewis contains some of that history. An ardent abolitionist, George B. Hitchcock made his home a stop along the Underground Railroad, a safe haven for runaway slaves and all of those who fought against slavery. The historic home now operates as a museum that is a testament to Hitchcock’s role in the antislavery movement.
