The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway:  Path to Freedom

There is a dramatic and important story hidden away on the beautiful, serene backroads of Chester County, Pennsylvania, yet one that is not immediately apparent in the countryside, and one that has not been completely revealed. It is the story of African Americans, freedom seekers, and the operatives of Underground Railroad in Southeastern Pennsylvania where the manifest courage of hundreds of lives risked, meant thousands were saved. There are many locations throughout the region that are relevant to this story, along a route that could often mean the difference between bondage and freedom, or even life or death.
