New Brighton, Pennsylvania, 15066 $55,000
At least nine sites in New Brighton — homes, flour mill, and church — were safe houses to help runaway slaves escape from Southern states, where slavery was legal, to free states in the North, and ultimately to Canada(1). This beautiful 1870 historic home in downtown New Brighton is one of them! It was originally one large, beautiful estate home. It's been converted into 5 units, but can be restored to the elegant home it used to be. Original woodwork throughout the home is lovely. The basement has the original tunnels that were used for the underground railroad. This is your chance to live in a piece of history!
