The Underground Railroad Heritage Trail is a program of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, and was established to preserve, promote and celebrate New York's rich Underground Railroad and anti-slavery heritage. The Program is a comprehensive 'portal' of designated authentic historic sites and interpretive centers associated with UGRR and anti-slavery activity in New York. The Program focuses on developing sites inside and out by addressing a range of needs - preservation support to protect and restore the historic resource, interpretive planning/development to ensure a high quality educational experience and strategic planning/capital campaign assistance to ensure a healthy, stable organization is firmly in control of museum operations. The components of this Program when combined as a whole will ensure that visitors will receive a compelling and accurate historical experience.
