Map of the Underground Railroad route from Martinsville to the "Snow Hill House"

Map of the Underground Railroad route from Martinsville to the “Snow Hill House”. Just one of the many interesting things relating to Clinton County that can be found in the Siebert Collection.

From the 1890s to the 1930s, Professor Wilbur H. Siebert of the Ohio State University tracked the history of the Underground Railroad in Ohio and elsewhere. He became the leading expert of his time on the subject. In commemoration of Black History Month, you can explore Siebert’s huge collection of letters, photos, stories, notes, and other Underground Railroad related material. The material is available online through an Ohio History Connection Database that normally requires a subscription. Database is free to browse throughout the month of February.
