Step Back in Time

The Alliance Area Preservation Society continues to restore the Haines House as a symbol of our community's heritage and its role in making Alliance a better place today. The Haines House was built by one of the first settlers in the area, John Grant. His initial land grant encompassed much of what we know as the west side of Alliance. His daughter and son-in-law, Sarah and Ridgeway Haines, operated a station on the Underground Railroad in the House. Their son John Columbus Haines fought in the Civil War. He and his brothers were active in the growing Alliance community through the second half of the 19th Century and founded the first Alliance City Band. The Haines House represents what is special about our community and helps to build our sense of community identity.

We are grateful for the ongoing support of the community through donations and help with the many elements of renovation.

We thank everyone for their assistance.
