Underground Railroad Memorial Plaque


This unconspicuous memorial is laid in the corner of a McDonald's parking lot in Maywood, Chicago. The location once was the Ten Mile Freedom House where abolitionists helped slaveries escape from the South in the mid-19th century. A plaque was placed there to mark the former house and honor the contribution of Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad to abolitionism.
