Underground Railroad and Abolitionist History Walk

“Oberlin is perhaps the most important station along the whole line of the Underground Railway. It has rendered the most important services to Freedom. It is second only to Canada as an asylum for the hunted fugitive.” Hear stories about Oberlin’s most famous freedom seekers and people known to have helped them make their way to freedom. This guided history walk is approximately 90 minutes and is offered every Saturday in June, July, & August. Tickets are available online through the Event Calendar and at the Museum Store in the Monroe House up until tour time. Groups of 8 or more may call the Tour Coordinator at (440) 774-1700. This history walk will be cancelled if it is raining at start time and registrants may request refunds or transfers. This tour begins near the front steps of First Church, U.C.C. at the northwest corner of Main Street (Route 58) and Lorain Street (Route 511).
