Welcome Researchers

Little has been published collectively online about Slavery and Free Persons of Color in Greene County and Southwestern Pennsylvania.  The original purpose of this site was to share information about Slaves, Slave owners, Free Persons of Color and those who helped people along their way to Freedom on the Greene County Line of the Underground Railroad. With the help of other contributors we have expanded to include documents and information for Washington and Fayette County.
