The Concord Presbyterian Church congregation
organized in 1805. The Concord Church was an
integral part of the antislavery movement and was
a station on the Underground Railroad. Reverend
James H. Dickey, the congregation's second pastor,
was known to be "an avowed anti-slavery man" and
an "active Ohio abolitionist." The Anderson and
Galbraith families, who were members of the congregation. were Underground Railroad conductors.
Fugitives hid in the loft of the church until they
could be taken to the next station in either
Frankfort or Chillicothe.
