Rhoads-Harter House

7866 Main St.
Clinton, OH, 44216

Built in 1847, this unique Gothic Revival home was considered one of the finest of its time. It is listed as a Summit County Underground Railroad site on the well-traveled "Chestnut Ridge Track," which crossed the township, assisting runaway slaves on their way to Canada and to freedom.

In 1874, Pearson Rhoads, a Civil War veteran of Andersonville prison, and his wife Sara Jane Foltz purchased the home. They raised eight children in a loving, religious environment. The home now serves as a museum depicting family life in the canal villages.
