Freedom’s Friends: 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 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).

This history walk will be cancelled if it is raining at start time and registrants may request refunds or transfers. History walks may be cancelled if fewer than 5 people pre-register.

Groups of 8 or more may contact the Museum Education & Tour Coordinator via e-mail at tourinfo@oberlinheritage.org or by phone at (440) 774-1700.
