The North Star Underground Railroad Museum celebrates the history of the Champlain Line of the Underground as it relates to seven northeastern New York Counties, Vermont and the Canadian Provinces of Quebec and Ontario. The theme of our museum's exhibits is Lake Champlain: Gateway to Freedom. We provide tours, offer lectures, present dramatic readings and hold workshops for children and adults. We develop outdoor interpretive panels. We bring to light little known stories of Africans and African Americans who were enslaved and freed in our region or followed the Champlain Line of the Underground Railroad to New York, Vermont or Canada. We honor the men and women who aided them. Many of our stories can be found on our website www.norhcountryundergroundrailroad.com Prior to the opening of our museum in May of 2011, Underground Railroad route maps did not include the Champlain Line. Our exhibits and programs have literally put the Champlain Line on the map.
