Local group wants to honor city-owned Underground Railroad site, currently being used for storage

Comment on this

The Grover Barn, located at 2819 Stone Barn Terrace, formerly a fire station, the city-owned building is now being used for storage. A local group, Guardians of Grover Barn, would like to see it get recognition and become more accessible to the public.

Though Lawrence proudly touts its abolitionist past, one of the only standing Underground Railroad stops in the city is being used for nothing more than storage.
