John Tryon was a Lewiston Abolitionist, elder of First Presbyterian Church and a conductor of the Underground Railroad. He helped countless runaway slaves attain their freedom across the Niagara River from a house known as "Tryon's Folly." This sculpture symbolizes the home with the light in the attic and a cast bronze cellar where the slaves were sheltered. Inscribed on it is cryptic correspondence between station captains regarding underground travel.
