Honest Abe Would Approve

by by Joseph Mitlof

The two lantern lights hanging on the Underground Railroad exhibit here in Nyack would have been a most welcomed sight on a cold snowy February night for an escaping African American  fleeing North to freedom.  Lanterns were one of the numerous signals that were provided by “station masters” to signal a safe haven.  Somehow it seemed appropriate to visit the old barn on this cold February night of Abraham Lincolns birthday.

Nyack People & Places, a weekly series that features photos and profiles of citizens and scenes near Nyack, NY, is sponsored by Sun River Health.
