"Soon after, I returned home to my family, with a determination to bring them as soon as possible to live in Kentucky, which I esteemed a second paradise, at the risk of my life and fortune.

Old Slave Pen in Maysville from 1907 Photo

Torn down long ago it was located near the former Maysville High School. Another two-story log slave pen was found on a farm in Mason County and moved to the Underground Railroad Museum in Cincinnati in 1999. The brick slave pen was located in the empty lot next to the school in the second photo taken in 1913.
