A home with an incredible story

The Interpretive Center expands on the story of the Coffins and the community, and how they worked to assure that freedom seekers were provided with shelter, resources and transportation on their journey north.

The Levi & Catharine Coffin State Historic Site provides a unique setting for your next corporate or organizational event. Here you get one-on-one with an amazing story of courage and sacrifice. Located in historic Fountain City, Indiana, (known as Newport until 1878) the 1839 Coffin home was given the title of “Grand Central Station of the Underground Railroad.” This Federal-style home was part of a larger network that served as a place of refuge for freedom seekers. The home contains many furnishings commonly seen in early 19th century Quaker homes in this part of Indiana.
