Description: Photograph showing a house that was used as station on the Underground Railroad. The description on the back of the photograph reads: "One of the Winder Houses north of North Lewisburg where slaves were harbored [sic]." The Underground Railroad was a system of safe houses and hiding places that helped fugitive slaves escape to freedom in the northern United States or across the border in Canada.
Thomas Winder, a Quaker, was an operator who helped escaped slaves in the North Lewisburg, Ohio, area along with other members of his family. Quakers were strongly opposed to slavery and offered help to slaves seeking their freedom as early as the late 1700s. View on Ohio Memory.

Description: Photograph showing the back of the post card. The typed paragraph on the top left-side reads: "POST CARD| MESSAGE| "The Palace," Zoar, Ohio| Near the garden, lofty stone steps ascending to the entrance is the conspicuous dwelling of the village-the former residence of the leader, Joseph Bimeler. Often designated by visitors as "the palace," it is a two and a half story, cupola surmounted, red brick mansion with a spacious basement. It was erected in 1835, a few years after the marriage of the founder of the Society and served as Bimeler's home until his death in 1853. In those days it was considered a most pretentious establishment and certainly far beyond anything it its locality. The Ohio State Historical Society and the Zoar Historical Society are collaborating in the preservation of old Zoar Village." The handwriting under the paragraph reads: "The Palace" see opposite sides." There is a hand-drawn red checkmark and a "#7" on the right-side under the caption "ADDRESS." View on Ohio Memory.

Description: This photograph shows a woman relaxing at an umbrella table in the yard behind a Lustron house in the late 1940s. Lustron homes were prefabricated, single-family homes constructed of porcelain steel. They were manufactured in Columbus, Ohio, to alleviate a post-World War II housing shortage. Unable to compete with traditional builders, Lustron went out of business in 1950. A total of 2,498 Lustron houses were built in 36 states. View on Ohio Memory.
