Thomas Hamm speaks on “Quakers and the Underground Railroad in the mid-19th century,” coinciding with the Hoosier History told in miniature exhibit at the Museum of Miniature Houses, an official Bicentennial Legacy Project, and especially pertaining to the museum’s miniature replica of the Levi Coffin House that is considered the main station on the Underground Railroad.
The talk is co-sponsored by the Carmel Clay Historical Society. Admission is free.
