Old Hathaway Farm

A reported local station on the Underground Railroad was the Old Hathaway farm just north of Port Jefferson (405 Broad Street). In the barn across the road was a secret hiding place where the family hid slaves. Like the Rankin house in Ripley, Ohio, the farm sat at the top of a hill overlooking the community. Used as a home up until recent years, the building was destroyed during the summer of 1998 due to its greatly deteriorated condition.

These photos of the home were taken by Sherrie Casad-Lodge in June, 1998.  Above at right is the south side of the home which overlooks Port Jefferson. At left is the east side of the structure. Renovations and changes have been made to the building over the years.
