Guided Sightseeing Underground Railroad Tour Cambridge, MD

Wind through the picturesque, rural landscape on Maryland's Eastern Shore exploring the childhood, teen, and young years of Harriet Tubman's life.  Visit sites related to her birthplace in 1822, her head injury in her teen years at an 1800s general store, and areas associated with her first escape in 1849. Hear stories about her life as a slave, her family, and escapes from this area on the Underground Railroad.  Visit slave trading sites and hear the story of Kessiah, Harriet's niece who was to be auctioned at the Courthouse. Our tour includes a visit to the mural featuring a powerful image of Harriet Tubman with her hand outstretched, beckoning the viewer to join her on a journey to freedom.

 

Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center

Explore the stories of Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad! The new Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center serves as an orientation center and gateway to the larger Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Scenic Byway. The Visitor Center offers exhibits, a film, restrooms, picnic facilities, and staff to offer further information and guidance to visit other sites along the byway.

 

Bucktown Village Store

The Bucktown Village Store is an authentic 19th century country store and is operated by the Bucktown Village Foundation, a 501c3 organization. The store operates as a museum featuring authentic African American artifacts related to slavery, various displays, and gifts within a country store setting.

Between 1834 and 1836 at this location, Harriet Tubman received a blow to her head that fractured her skull while she attempted to assist a fellow enslaved man. This has been called Tubman's first public act of defiance. As a result of the injury, she experienced lifelong health problems and spiritual visions that changed her views and guided the rest of her life.
