The Lantern  launched in November 2017. It is KURC’s first effort at a publication to share with those who, over the years, have expressed interest in our work. We expect it to be a quarterly publication. We hope to keep everyone abreast of our activities, our hopes for the future, and, as our mission states, “to preserve the heritage” of the Underground Railroad in this area.

If you have questions, comments, or possible contributions to future issues of The Lantern, please contact Terence Maguire, Editor, at
