The Underground Railroad

The Underground Railroad consisted of a series of places where slaves were able to take refuge on their trek to freedom. Started by the Quakers, abolitionists and black free men soon became involved. This secret avenue to freedom was taken by an increasingly large number of daring runaways from the beginning of the nineteenth century through the decade between the Fugitive Slave Act and the outbreak of the Civil War. New Milford has three documented houses (Gaylordsville has one and Washington, two) that were part of the Underground Railroad. Still standing today, they are:

Charles A. Sabin House
Lanesville Road, Wanzer Farm

Agustine A. Thayer House
Grove Street

Elisha Bostwick House
Grove Street

James Stuart House

Frederick W. Gunn House

Daniel Platt House
