KENNETT: Slaves seeking freedom

The Kennett Underground Railroad Center asked me to mention that they are once again offering two-hour-long guided bus tours on June 18, July 16, Aug. 20, and Sept. 17 (all Sundays). The Underground Railroad, a network of people who helped slaves to escape from the South, was very active in our area from 1830 to 1860.
"View select Underground Railroad sites, historic homes and Quaker Meetinghouses while learning about local abolitionists, both African-American and white, and activity that went on in this area."
Advance reservations are required; requested donation is $20 for adults and $15 for youth. For more information: 484-544-5070 (phone); (email); (website).
