        The Underground Railroad | Social Studies Arts Toolkit

        In Boone County, Kentucky, research has uncovered the local stories of heroism and sacrifice on the Underground Railroad, the secret network of people who helped enslaved individuals escape north to freedom. The county’s ridge overlooking the Ohio River gave people a wide view as they prepared to cross over. Historians describe several local sites on the Underground Railroad, and tell the story of the Cincinnati 28, who made a daring escape and then hid in plain sight as they passed through Cincinnati.
