Columbia County was an important community for reform movements and the Underground Railroad in the 19th century. Numerous freedom seekers made their way to the region, knowing that support was available from abolitionists, both black and white.
The Underground Railroad Education Center brings to the public the historically documented accounts of both freedom seekers and abolitionists, highlighting the leadership roles occupied by African Americans abolitionists, identifying who they were, what they did, where they engaged in their activities as they sought to ensure that the promises of our nation’s Declaration of Independence were available to all.
