No matter what your age, no matter what your interest, the Village of Vandalia Underground Railroad Days was sure to please. Over 1000 visitors came to the tiny Village of Vandalia Michigan recently to enjoy the 9th annual collaboration between the Village and the Underground Railroad Society of Cass County (URSCC). They took guided tours of UGRR sites that told the story of the Kentucky Slave Raid in 1847, and watched local students act it out. They toured UGRR stations at the Bonine Carriage House and the Bogue House. They toured the Bonine House and met Mary Charlotte Bonine, who was born in the house in 1934, and enjoyed talking about growing up in the beautiful Victorian home.
