Jacob and Hannah Leverton Home
“Station House of Quaker Underground Railroad Agents”
Jacob and Hannah Leverton were white Quaker abolitionists. Their brick house near Hunting Creek has been described as “the main stopping place for the Underground Railroad in the region.” Their son, Arthur W. Leverton, and a free black neighbor, Daniel Hubbard, were exposed in 1858 as agents of the Underground Railroad. When a mob assembled in Dorchester County to apprehend them, Daniel Hubbard fled to Philadelphia and Arthur Leverton to Indiana. Soon after, Leverton’s family sold their home and joined him in Indiana.
