Underground Railroad Memorial Plaque (Cook County, Illinois)
This inconspicuous memorial lies in the corner of a McDonald's parking lot in Maywood, Chicago. The location was once the site of the Ten Mile Freedom House where abolitionists helped enslaved people escape from the South in the mid-19th century. The plaque was placed to mark the former house and to honor the contribution of Harriet Tubman whose role in the Underground Railroad was pivotal.
