A former underground railway tunnel for escaped slaves? That's what David Byrd of the Black Economic Development League (BEDL) says has been uncovered at the BEDL building site on Depot Street at the Broadway Bridge. The discovery was made while footings were being dug for the building which will be used for offices and spaces for classes in such subjects as photography, printing and drafting.
