Jacob Leverton Dwelling

Location: Seaman Road, Preston, MD
Hours: This is a private residence.

The Jacob Leverton Dwelling was the “main stopping place,” a focal point around which several adjoining landowners participated in a broad stronghold of Underground Railroad activity. From their early 19th Century residence, Quakers Jacob and Hannah Leverton aided escapees moving under cover to freedom in the North. It is a designated site of the Network to Freedom Program.
