Casting conductors in period clothing, this tour takes you back to the days of the Underground Railroad through passageways, tunnels and cellars. You get a feel for what runaway slaves went through to escape into Canada. The journey begins at the Michigan Street Baptist Church, home to parishioner William Wells Brown, the first African-American to publish a novel. It then moves Broderick Park, where Web DuBois crossed into Canada. The tour ends at Murphy's Orchards where you will be part of a live Underground Railroad re-enactment.
Went several years ago. Took the re-inactment tour and loved it. Very informative, perfect for any age group. Part of it was not handicap accessible as part of it is actually on a UGRR site (farm). The enactors were very good and the experience was exciting.
Also went on an overnight trip with them. Also informative, well organized and fun, too. Because the tours are in a specialty market, prices are a little bit higher than other tours - but well worth the money.
