Accounts of Underground Railroad activity in New Hampshire are scanty though oral legends point to locations like the residence above, just north of the Massachusetts border where a cluster of dedicated abolitionists lived.  The state also was home to Nathaniel Rogers who published one of the nation's most radical abolitionist newspapers, The Herald of Freedom, from 1835-1846, in Concord, and the renowned Hutchinson Family Singers who toured throughout the North during the antebellum period.  In the northern part of the state along the Connecticut River, a cluster of communities are alleged to have aided fugitive slaves, according to correspondence received by Wilbur Siebert.
