Baltimore Train Station Recognized as Part of the Underground Railroad

The Mount Clare train station in Baltimore, Maryland, is getting recognition for playing a major role in the Underground Railroad. Kris Hoellen, the executive director of the B&O Railroad Museum, and her team have discovered that the Mount Clare station was used by at least 20 confirmed freedom-seekers heading north to escape slavery.
