The farm where Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast is now located was owned by the Hoffer family in the 1860's. The Hoffer family was sympathetic to the cause of freedom for all persons. They participated as a stop or station on the "Underground Railroad" trail through the Cumberland Valley. The floor in a closet of the summer kitchen was cut so that freedom seekers could hide until it was safe enough for them to move on to the next safe house. When this section of the property was remodeled in the 1970's, pieces of plates and eating utensils were found - perhaps from the food supplied to the runaways by the Hoffer family.
