KENNETT: Underground Railroad tour

On Saturday, Feb. 4, I'll be one of the guides for a free walking tour of downtown Kennett Square called "Freedmen, Fugitives and Friends," organized by the Kennett Underground Railroad Center. Participants will "to see the houses and buildings and to hear the stories of Kennett Square Quakers and African Americans who coexisted peacefully before and after the Civil War." The tour will focus on the East Linden Street area.
I led a similar tour in the summer of 2015 and we had a great turnout.
The 40-minute walking tours will run every 10 to 15 minutes from 2 to 4 p.m. The starting point is the parking lot at Willow and East State Street (you can park for free there as well).
