  69. 69. The Wooster Pike was a route along the Underground Railroad in the1830s and 1840s. The illegal activity was a secret one and few detailswere written down. Parma Twp. was known to help the runaway slaves.They were fed, hidden in a barn and in an underground tunnel near theOld Stone Tavern that led to Countryman’s Creek as they waited fortransport by wagon at night. The next underground station stop wasCleveland, which was called “Hope”, where the runaway slaves boardedships to travel to Canada. Routes for the runaway slaves changed as thelocal slave hunters and U.S. Marshals learned of the routes. An OhioHistorical marker in Strongsville, Ohio was erected in 2003 to documentthe route there from Strongsville to Berea when the route changed alongthe Wooster Pike. The County Sheriff had learned of the location of theunderground tunnel in Parma Twp. at the Old Stone Tavern and had itdestroyed by blasting the exit near Countryman’s Creek. The next slideshows the generally known routes used in the 1850s. Several localtaverns were stations along the Wooster Pike in the 1830s mentioned inlocal history books for Parma, Middleburg Heights, and Strongsville,Ohio. State and Federal laws were enacted to return runaway slaves totheir masters since slaves were not citizens, but property for the slaveowners who lived in other states. Ohio did not allow slavery and did notencourage its citizens to help runaway slaves escape to freedom. 06/05/10
