Historic Newport Walking Tour

The community of Newport, Indiana, now known as Fountain City, was well known in the decades before the Civil War as a place for those seeking freedom from slavery. Levi and Catharine Coffin were instrumental in providing support to freedom-seekers, but there were others who helped the Quaker couple to hide freedom-seekers and move them north.  

On this walking tour, we’ll explore the sites to understand how Newport worked together as part of the Underground Railroad.
