An official Path Through History Site! Visitors will find a working tin shop that was the hub of the community. Abolitionist Starr Clark gave refuge to several African-American slaves in this building from the mid-1830s to the Civil War. A member of Mexico's Vigilance Committee, Clark held abolitionist meetings and ran a tin shop, making stove pipes and other pieces in this building, which was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. The building was the hub of the abolitionist movement in Oswego County and has been renovated to its original appearance. Features interpretive displays and exhibits on the Underground Railroad and abolitionist activity on Oswego County.
