The rich history of the Haines House as a key stop on the Underground Railroad beginning around 1853. Active Abolitionists, Jonathan Ridgeway Haines and Sarah Grant Haines were the owners of this particular farmhouse located on now what is known as State Route 183. The restoration efforts by the Alliance Area Preservation Society is a true testament of this fascinating time in history.
