Hardwick, VT

Home Rhode Island Vermont UGRR

Hardwick, Vermont is in a remote section of northern Vermont, east of the Connecticut River, which might seem an unlikely destination for a fugitive slave to some.  However, in the June 10, 1843 issue of Emancipator, Rev. Kiah Bailey reported the visit of a fugitive slave to his home.
