The Underground Railroad Research Institute (UGRRI) was established at Georgetown College on May 1, 2001 for the purpose of researching and documenting Kentucky's UGRR sites and educating Georgetown College students and community through an interdisciplinary academic curriculum, programs, and opportunities for original research. Georgetown College is a private, residential, co-educational liberal arts college established ini 1792 by Elijah Craig, Baptist minister from Spotsylvania, Virginia's "Traveling Church." Special Collections at Georgetown contain some of the historical records of early Kentucky Baptists responsible for establishing early Kentucky Abolitionist Churches. Efforts are underway to expand this collection and add a greater variety of Underground Railroad research materials to our beginning collection.
