When you enter the white clapboard house you will see displays of ads, auctions and artifacts that help tell the story of slavery and the Underground Railroad. The Burkle Estate was built in 1849 by Jacob Burkle, livestock trader and bakery owner, who opened his home to help slaves escape to freedom.
