In the 1850s, Kenosha was an active stop on the "Underground Railroad." This "railroad" was a covert network of people who hid southern slaves in their homes before they were smuggled onto ships bound for Canada. Deming's residence, originally located near this site, is believed to have been a stop on the "Underground Railroad."
