LeMoyne House

Brief History

This site is Pennsylvania's first National Historic Landmark of the Underground Railroad. The stone house was built in 1812 by John Julius LeMoyne, but it was his son, Francis Julius LeMoyne, who went against the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 and fought for the freedom of slaves. It is currently used by the Washington County Historical Society.
