HEART Underground Railroad Field Trip April 21 (6 hours)

Descripton

Field Trip covering the Historic Underground Railroad in Maysville, Kentucky and Rippley Ohio (Rankin House). This will be a very informative, unique and hands on experience. We will have our own tour guide and Dr. Apple will be with us on the trip. Coordinated by the Maysville-Mason County Convention and Visitors Bureau, the tour includes visits to the Museum, the Harriet Beecher Stowe Slavery to Freedom Museum, safe houses with hidden stairwells and secret passageways, and other points of interest in the final leg of the dangerous journey to freedom. Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of the influential anti-slavery novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” visited Old Washington in 1833 and witnessed a slave auction, which was common at the time. Considered by some whites a form of entertainment, auctions attracted many spectators to the courthouse lawn. Tour the museum and learn about Stowe, once described by President Abraham Lincoln as “the lady who started the great war.” Another stop in Old Washington is Paxton House, built by prominent attorney and abolitionist James. A. Paxton. A favorite meeting place for lawyers and citizens to discuss politics and key issues of the day, Paxton House (606-759-7411) was a station on the Underground Railroad.
