Walk in the footsteps of freedom seekers and the abolitionists who helped them on their journey to freedom.

What was it like to seek freedom on the Underground Railroad? Explore this question through hands-on activities as you learn about freedom seekers and the brave men and women, both enslaved and free, who made this region one of the most successful routes to freedom in the years before the Civil War.
