Black History Month: How Cleveland and St. John's Episcopal Church became 'Station Hope' on the Underground Railroad

Ohio City's St. John's Episcopal Church is recognized as the oldest consecrated church building in Cuyahoga County, and is also believed to have been a stop on the Underground Railroad.

As we continue to honor Black History Month at 3News, Rev. Kelly Aughenbaugh, current Rector at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Medina, and Vicar at St. John's from 2016-2019, and Dr. Noël M. Voltz, Assistant Professor of History at Case Western University shared perspectives on both St. John's and Cleveland's unique role in the Underground Railroad, and the significance behind the name "Station Hope."
