Visit to Underground Railroad Museum

Join us for a Freedom Conversation Tour on Saturday, April 6, at 10:30 a.m. at the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Museum. RSVP required. Meet at North Church parking lot to carpool.

The Racial Justice Task Group of University and North Presbyterian churches is sponsoring a visit to Western New York’s newest museum: The Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center. This is an experiential museum that reveals authentic stories of Underground Railroad freedom seekers and abolitionists in Niagara Falls. The purpose of the museum is to “inspire visitors to recognize modern injustices that stem from slavery and to take action toward an equitable society.” Our group will participate in a special “Freedom Conversation Tour,” led by a trained interpretive specialist and designed to foster empathy, increase knowledge, and encourage action.

Admission prices are: $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students, $6 for children 6-12, and free for ages 5 and under. Participants will meet at North Presbyterian Church on Saturday, April 6 at 10:30 a.m. and we can carpool together to Niagara Falls. Those interested are asked to sign up during coffee hour or by contacting the church office at 632.1330 or n.church@verizon.net.
