Former Underground Railroad stop in Montco at center of preservation fight

At the intersection of Germantown and Butler pikes sits a 10-acre parcel of land with three buildings: a farmhouse, a carriage house, and a barn built in the late-18th and early 19th centuries.

    Former Underground Railroad stop in Montco at center of preservation fight
    A years-long fight over an historic property in Whitemarsh Township, near Plymouth Meeting in Montgomery County, Pa., continues this week as a developer and a group of preservationists make their cases in a township zoning hearing. At issue is a property that was once a stop along the Underground Railroad, sheltering African-American slaves who had escaped Southern plantations and were traveling toward freedom.
