Stephen Bogue Commemorative Marker

The Stephen Bogue Underground Railroad marker commemorates the Underground Railroad (UGRR) network that thrived on the local Cass County landscape. This area holds the key to the interesting past of countless African Americans such as Perry Sanford, who fled the American South in search of freedom. The trials and triumph felt by the local Quaker community as they participated in UGRR activities is also commemorated at this site. Stephen Bogue and his family provided jobs, financial assistance, homes, and protection to men, women, and children who came to Young's Prairie, on their journey to freedom. This large boulder marker is located adjacent to the original Stephen Bogue home and commemorates the UGRR activities that took place at the home, the surrounding landscape and in events that spanned from Kentucky, through Cass, Calhoun, and Wayne counties.
