In 1846 John Freeman Walls fugitive from North Carolina built log cabin with money from the Refugee Home Society. The development of the John Freeman Walls Historic Site began in 1976 when Dr. Bryan Walls a Windsor dentist and great-great grandson of John, began four years of genealogical research, which culminated in the publication of the documented novel

"THE ROAD THAT LED TO SOMEWHERE". This story traces John and Jane Walls' perilous journey along the Underground Railroad from Troublesome Creek, Rockingham County, North Carolina to Puce, Maidstone Township, Ontario,Canada. Some highlights include viewing a false bottom buggy like those used to transport fugitive slaves, touring the historic walkway and visiting the Walls family cemetery.
