Levi Coffin House: Hoosier History of Racial Harmony

You will not find a finer example of historic preservation in Indiana than the Levi Coffin House. This nugget of Hoosier history was restored to its 19th-century splendor many years ago and has been maintained through the years mostly by the dedication of devoted volunteers. This National Historic Landmark located in Fountain City, Indiana (formerly known as the town of Newport in Levi Coffin's day) was once considered Grand Central Station of the Underground Railroad because of the more than 1000 slaves who passed through the house during their escape to freedom.

The Chateau Laroche which means "Rock Castle" is nestled on the banks of the Little Miami River in Loveland, Ohio (on the northeastern outskirts of Cincinnati). Loveland is a fitting location for this architectural feat considering is it the product of one man's labor of love and his desire to positively influence the young men in his care.
