What are StoryMaps?
StoryMaps are tools for digital exploration. They focus on places while telling a story. As you use a StoryMap, you can travel from one end of the country to another (digitally of course), while viewing photographs and reading stories. StoryMaps are a great way to travel without leaving your front door!
Women and the Underground Railroad
This StoryMap features the places of women associated with the Underground Railroad. While not intended to be an exhaustive exploration of all sites associated with the Underground Railroad, this map shows that networks to freedom spanned across the country. Discover some of the stories of the Underground Railroad using the StoryMap.
If you’re inspired to learn more about the Underground Railroad visit the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park in Maryland or the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park in New York.
The StoryMap was produced in concert with National Park Service partners, including the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers.
