Three new sites and two new biographies of reformers have been added to the Freethought Trail. In all, the Trail now includes a record 118 historic sites.
The most prominent addition is a new location at which Frederick Douglass resided in Rochester, only discovered in 2010.
The new biographies profile the abolitionists and woman's rights advocates Catherine Fish Stebbins and her husband, Giles Badger Stebbins.
The additional new sites are the grave of Catherine and Giles Stebbins and the grave of Catherine's father, abolitionist and Utopian Benjamin Fish, both in Rochester's Mount Hope Cemetery.
