The marker will be placed in front of the buildings that served as stations for the fugitives moving north to Canada. The apartment building on the corner of the township green, which was originally a store and has also been a boardinghouse, had a tunnel in the basement. The 1831 Joel Miner home, located next door, housed groups of fugitives in the barn. The funeral home across the street, originally a hotel, also served as a station.

The historical society will have displays of books and historical items, food and homemade pie. There will be entertainment for children and adults.

Markers are awarded based on historical significance, geographic diversity and historical periods. This marker was researched by the Brookfield Historical Society and the Ohio Historical Society.
