1 review of Slave Haven Underground Railroad Museum

Off-the-Beaten Path but Great History

Slave Haven is a small collection of artifacts displayed in a 19th-century home that was part of the Underground railroad. Pamphlets describe being able to see the cellar where escapees waited during their flight to freedom along with some of the original passageways, but in reality, visiting Slave Haven is so much more than simply seeing old, dark places. The actual collection of furniture, memorabilia, and other artifacts isn't all that different from anything I had ever seen before, but the presentation is so unorthodox that it made for a unique visit. Instead of simply reading about the history, you’ll learn slave songs (and actually sing out loud with the group), huddle up with strangers to represent what it may have felt like coming over on slave ships, and hear more stories about the underground history while uncomfortably standing in a cold, dark cellar.
