The Underground Railroad was a network of secret routes and safe houses used by 19th-century African-American slaves in the United States to escape to freedom with the help of abolitionists and allies who supported their cause.

This path from slavery to freedom ran right through Upstate New York, where tens of thousands of people headed toward Canada in search of a better life. This particular journey begins with a convenient transport from a local accommodation to the beginning of the tour. Prepare to go back in time to the 19th century, where the Underground Railroad shuttled slaves to freedom.

The knowledgeable tour guides emulate the “conductors” of the day — those people who transported the fugitives from station to station — among others, in era-specific clothing to provide a more realistic sense of the time. Hear the stories and see the key historical sites in the area.
