Two Opportunities to Learn More about Harriet Tubman in Maryland

By Preservation Maryland

The sister site to Cambridge, Maryland’s Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park, was earlier this month recognized as the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park in Auburn, New York, where the buildings where Tubman lived and worshiped remain largely intact. This is another step in the right direction to honor Tubman’s legacy to American history. Read on for important dates to celebrate and learn:




March 11-12, 2017 in Church Creek, Maryland

Over the weekend of March 11-12, 2017, the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center will open to the public and immerse visitors in Tubman’s world through exhibits that are informative, evocative and emotive. Understand the value of Tubman’s early years in Maryland, learn about the Underground Railroad resistance movement and her work as a freedom fighter, liberator, leader and humanitarian.


May 18-21, 2017 in Cambridge, Maryland

The National Park Service, National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program and the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Conference will co-host a joint conference in 2017, in honor of the grand opening of the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center in Church Creek, Maryland.  The conference, “On the Edge of Freedom:  Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad in the Borderlands,” will be held in Cambridge, Maryland, May 18-21, 2017.
