DENTON The story of a runaway slave spared in Denton by dogs he once befriended is now memorialized on a new sign on the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom along the Choptank River.

The sign, telling the story of Moses Viney, was unveiled Saturday in Denton's Crouse Memorial Park before a small audience comprising local officials and honored guests. A reception was held afterwards in the nearby Museum of Rural Life, where a print of Viney's portrait was presented.
