Ozella's Underground Railroad Quilt Code on display through the end of October.

This is one of the many quilt pieces in our lobby display case.

Bear's Paw: reminded fugitives to follow the actual bear's footprints, which would indicate the best path and also lead to food and/or water. This path would normally run through the Appalachian Mountains.

Stop by and read what the various patterns meant and put your name on the list for the book that reveals the code: Hidden in Plain View : A Secret Story of Quilts and the Underground Railroad by Jacqueline L. Tobin, Raymond G. Dobard.

Thanks for reading,
