Episcopal church was stop on Underground Railroad.

The basement of this church was a stop on the Underground Railroad. An article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, 12/3/15 at pp. C1, C6, hints at this, but the church's Website says so, http://www.stpaulselkinspark.org/history/. The article also has photos of panels depicting the Underground Railroad.
