Caption
The Langstons, an African American family, kept an Underground Railroad station at their home in Chillicothe, Ross County, Ohio. This photograph was taken by Diathea C. Scholl. The image was collected by Ohio State University professor Wilbur H. Siebert (1866-1961). Siebert began researching the Underground Railroad in the 1890s as a way to interest his students in history (AL03189).
