Rokeby Museum

Rokeby Museum is a 90-acre historic site and National Historic Landmark, designated for its Underground Railroad history. The site was the home and farm of a remarkable Quaker family through four generations and nearly 200 years (1793-1961). The second generation of the family—Rowland Thomas and Rachel Gilpin Robinson—were radical abolitionists who participated in reform activities both locally and nationally and sheltered many freedom seekers. The record of these African-American freedom seekers is retained in family correspondence.
