Did You Know?

Did you know the Brackett House was once a station in the Underground Railroad during the Civil War?

Built by Zachariah Brackett around 1810 with bricks from his brickyard at Prides Corner, the house was torn down during Urban Renewal in the 1970s. It was located in what is now the plaza across the street from the row of businesses on Main Street (Freaky Bean, Full Court Press, etc.).
