Hiram Miller Underground Railroad sign moves from Hinckley. 2016 article by Halee Heironimus in the Medina Gazette. “The president of the Hinckley Historical Society, Chuck Gibson, said Miller’s house was removed at least 30 years ago, if not longer, but said the historical society has no record of it. ‘The sign references that there was an Underground Railroad location building on the site,’ Gibson said. ‘That building is gone and so as a result the sign doesn’t reference anything appropriate at this point.’” (Submitted on July 17, 2019.)
