Freedom's Friends History Walk
History Walk begins near the front steps of First Church (106 N. Main Street; Oberlin) at the northwest corner of Main Street (Route 58) and Lorain Street (Route 511).

“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 lasts approximately 90 minutes and covers .7 walking miles. This tour ends at the Martin Luther King Jr. Park on East Vine Street.
