Clermont Freedom Trail

—New Richmond Waterfront —

In 1862 slave catchers paraded a captured Leroy Lee in
manacles down Front Street toward the river. A crowd of
New Richmond citizens confronted the armed captors
demanding the release of Lee. Seeing they were greatly
outnumbered, the slave catchers relented. Two weeks later
Lee enlisted in the Union army. The New Richmond
Waterfront is recognized by the National Park Service as a
National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Site.
