Underground Railroad Marker - Erie County Ohio Historical Society


At the entrance to the Jackson Street Pier is an historical marker recognizing the activities of the Underground Railroad in Sandusky during the years preceding the Civil War.

With its lakefront location and proximity to Canada—and the fact that many of its residents were anti-slavery, Sandusky was an important stop—often the final one—on the Underground Railroad for hundreds, perhaps thousands of escaped slaves.
