The Slave House

The Crenshaw House was a “station” on the Reverse Underground Railroad that transported escaped slaves and kidnapped free blacks back to servitude in slave states. The home’s third floor attic contains 12 rooms long believed to be where John Crenshaw operated a secret slave jail for kidnapped free black and captured runaway slaves.  Those imprisoned in cells were tortured, raped, whipped, and sometimes murdered.  Crenshaw began a slave-breeding program in the attic.    For more Information
