Don't miss this amazing opportunity to visit and learn more about two of the most important and influential end points on the Underground Railroad.

Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site


Uncle Tom’s Cabin is an African American history centre that commemorates the life of Rev. Josiah Henson and his contributions to the abolitionist movement and work on the Underground Railroad.

Rev. Henson's story was the inspiration for Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel Uncle Tom's Cabin.
