Prospect Place was a station on the "Underground Railroad" and was used to safely move escaped slaves to freedom.  The property is listed on the National Park Service,  National Register of Historic Places.

African American refugees who had escaped slavery in the South would be kept in the basement of the mansion.  They would be given food, lamps, blankets and whatever they lacked for their trip further north along the Underground Railroad.  Prospect Place was one of the largest stations on the Underground Railroad in the state of Ohio.  Bounty hunters from the south regularly roamed the Ohio countryside looking for runaway slaves, the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 made this legal, even though Ohio was a free state.  It was a very risky business to be involved in liberating these people.
