“one of the stations on the Underground Railroad”

The Milton House Museum is a documented Station on the Underground Railroad in Wisconsin, Joseph Goodrich the Station Master. Because of our western position, Wisconsin did not have the amount of Underground Railroad activity as many eastern states. Missouri was the closest slave holding state to Wisconsin. Fugitives would have traveled through Illinois & Wisconsin with the goal of reaching Lake Michigan. From the lake front a fugitive would have boarded a ship with an abolitionist captain & traveled the Great Lakes to escape into Canada. This was not an easy or safe path to travel. No one needed a ticket to travel the Underground Railroad, only a deep desire for freedom.
