The Parker Academy Project Featured in the Cincinnati Enquirer

In this week's Cincinnati Enquirer the faculty, staff, and students working on the Parker Academy Project were photographed and interviewed about their involvement and work on this historical site.



This site is important, not only in the tri-state area, but also nationally due to its involvement in the Underground Railroad and for being a pioneer school in racial and gender integration.



Many of the students and faculty involved are currently excavating the site, which is located on private land in New Richmond, OH, in hopes of uncovering pieces of the past that will help add some insight about the students and staff who lived and studied here during the 1800's.
