Jeff & Shirley Supik are historians who brought and renovated an old house in a small community, called Rockdale in Baltimore County which was built two hundred & eighteen ago in 1791 by Michael and his wife Nancy Emmart. Read about how it is connected with the “Underground Railroad” and Harriet Tubman. The first recorded history of the house was in 1806. Now called “The Emmart Pierpont Safe House” and located at Dogwood and Rolling Roads. It is open for touring.
