Winterset Farms is rich with history, as it was the last stop on the Underground Railroad. As mentioned in the book Walkin' the Line: A Journey from Past to Present along the Mason-Dixon by William Ecenbarger on page 107: Winterset sits on Mile 17, "The Line runs diagonally through a stone farmhouse that was built in 1742. It was originally part of a 212-acre farm owned by Richard Sanderson, but when he died in 1769 he spilt it into three parcels and left a thirty-acre tract to his slave, James Cherry, whom he also granted his freedom. About 1834 the farmhouse was purchased by the Ebright family and became an Underground Railroad stop. The house now is an office for the Winterset Farms Mobile Home Park, a family business operated by Sheila Moran, who was born here. 'My grandfather bought it from the Ebrights,' she says. She takes me to the basement and shows me a brick alcove about five feet high and four feet deep. 'They would hide in here until nightfall, and then move North. This is on the Delaware side of the house.'"
