My parents are visiting from California this week. On Friday, I took them on a tour of Genesee County.
Of course, we visited the LeRoy Jello Museum, where on the spur of the moment, I bought a little guide to notable locations in and around LeRoy related to the Underground Railroad.
It's a fascinating 17-mile drive.
Here's a couple of pictures.
This is Brend Road, one of the routes north for escaped slaves.
This was the home of Elijah Huftelen, who assisted station master Daniel MacDonald during the brief time MacDonald helped escaped slaves with passage through LeRoy. MacDonald's station house was somewhere in the vicinity.
If you're interested in taking the tour, the tour guide can be purchased at the Jello Museum for $1.
