To the editor:

Thank you for announcing our purchase of the Bonine House and Carriage House. We’re hearing from people who want to help restore these landmarks in all kinds of ways, from roofers to gardeners to architects.

The Bonine House has touched so many, both as an architectural treasure and as a symbol of courage and freedom. It will become the focal point for telling the story of the Underground Railroad in Cass County to the world.

This project needs all of us. Please become a Friend of the Bonine House. Go to our website, (or search on Bonine House). You can volunteer, donate materials or contribute money, all vitally needed.

URSCC is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, so donations are tax deductible.

You can also write to us at URSCC P.O. Box 124 Vandalia, MI  49095 or e-mail

Become a part of the legacy of the Bonine House. This is a long journey but a worthwhile one; and we thank you for taking it with us.

Cathy LaPointe, Treasurer

Underground Railroad Society of Cass County
