Haverhill and the Underground Railroad

Did you know that there was a stop on the Underground Railroad in Haverhill?

Or that John Greenleaf Whittier occasionaly conducted runaway slaves from Amesbury to this stop on Summer Street?

 

Check out our display for Black History Month on the first floor, and if you come on a Wednesday or Thursday you can learn more about the Haverhill station and others in the Merrimack Valley with resources from our Special Collections room!
