Family Heritage House Museum is a gallery and resource center for the preservation and study of African American achievements. The museum's mission is to inspire children to have respect for their ancestors, a love of learning and a passion for service. It also aims to strengthen black American families and empower them to maintain historical bonds of kinship, and to assist in the promulgation of the culture for the benefit of the general population. One such project related to these endeavors has been teh creation of an Underground Railroad research center. This center includes books, articles, and other information directly associated with the Underground Railroad, history of various fights for freedom, the experiences of slavery in the Americas, free black communities in Spanish Florida, and biographies of prominent abolitionists. The Underground Railroad also is featured prominently in the permanent exhibits.
