Here we are on Friday morning at the Lewelling Quaker Shrine in Salem, IA - a couple miles south of Mount Pleasant.

In the kitchen, we were shown a hidden trapdoor in the floor which leads to a crawlspace where black slaves fleeing from Missouri would hide during their trip out of slave states.

The Lewelling House was a first stop in the north for black slaves using the Underground Railroad to find their way to freedom.

Here is a picture of what the crawlspace looks like. The slaves that hid here would stay in the crawlspace during the day and resume their trip north under the cover of darkness.

While we were visiting Salem, several old cars drove by. I managed to take a picture of one.

Unbelievable today, this poster advertising a slave auction and describing the "goods" up for bids was apparently the norm in its time.

On the south side of the Lewelling House is a door to the basement which the Lewellings would allow authorities to search if they were looking for escaped slaves. This was separate from the hidden crawlspace, of course.

On the north side of Big Creek, on the opposite side as the Bethel church and cemetery, is where we surmize William Henry Barton operated a sawmill. This is what that side of the creek looks like.
