THE GAMMON HOUSE

BUILT IN 1850

The Gammon House was built in 1850 — the same year that the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 imposed six months’ imprisonment and a massive $1,000 fine on any person aiding a runaway slave by providing food or shelter.

The Gammon House is one of only three existing Ohio “stops” on the Underground Railroad owned by a free person of color.
