, VA 23803

Local legend of this African-American site has it that this house built ca. 1825-1850, was a part of the antebellum Underground Railroad by which slaves escaped to freedom in the North. The "Keziah Affair" in 1858, in which a Delaware schooner was caught smuggling five slaves out of Petrsburg, is another example of the active Undergound Railroad in Petersburg.
