Sites along the Underground Railroad were often selected because they were out-of-view. This necessity now presents a challenge in making sure the important stories of these places are told and preserved.
Preservation Maryland will work with the Maryland Office of Tourism Development, the Maryland State Archives, and the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture, along with other academic and local partners to submit these sites to the National Park Service’s Network to Freedom.
