If you want to step back in time and feel what it was like to be a part of the Underground Railway, this is the place to go!

This is a very interesting museum and historic site with authentic structures from the Underground railroad to freedom. It is run by Dr. Bryan Walls, a direct decedent of John Freeman Walls; the original owner. Dr. Bryan Walls is an author, a winner of the Order of Canada and Ontario, as well as a winner of an Obama volunteer award. He also was a personal friend of Rosa Parks who would take her students to the site. The educated staff did a great job at giving me an interesting tour of the 20 acre lot which includes the original hideaway. It was done in such a way as if I were a black fugitive running away to Canada. They even had sounds of hounds as you go through the woods. If you love history and or human rights, it's an off the beaten path must see! They also do school trips and tour busses.
