Harriet Tubman was a deeply spiritual woman who lived her ideals and dedicated her life to freedom. She is the Underground Railroad’s best known conductor and before the Civil War repeatedly risked her life to guide nearly 70 enslaved people north to new lives of freedom. This new national historical park preserves the same landscapes that Tubman used to carry herself and others away from slavery.
"I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger."
The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center will open to the public on March 11, 2017.
