Road to Freedom: The Underground Railroad

In the heart of the South Mountain region and located on the grounds of Caledonia State Park is Thaddeus Stevens Ironworks. Thaddeus Stevens Ironworks represents both the story of the nineteenth century iron ore industry and the Underground Railroad in the South Mountain area. Just as the landscape is key to the efforts of the South Mountain Partnership, the landscape was essential in the journeys of freedom seekers.

The powerful story of the Underground Railroad through the South Mountain region is revealed in this historical documentary produced by the Franklin County Visitors Bureau in conjunction with Blue Hawk Productions and Historical Entertainment, LLC.
