Freedom's Friends: UGRR History Walk


Learn about Oberlin’s famous freedom seekers and those known to have helped them make their way to freedom on the Underground Railroad.

“Oberlin is perhaps the most important station along the whole line of the Underground Railway. It has rendered the most important services to Freedom. It is second only to Canada as an asylum for the hunted fugitive.” Hear stories about Oberlin’s most famous freedom seekers and people known to have helped them make their way to freedom.

Cost is $6.00 per person and tickets are available online at www.oberlinheritagecenter.org, in person at the Museum Store in the Monroe House up until tour time, or by calling 440-774-1700.
