As part of monthly programming for our exhibit, The Underground Railroad: Freedom Seekers on the B&O Railroad, historian and author Anthony Cohen will be joining us for a special lecture on the history of the Underground Railroad.  

Cohen was an early pioneer of experiential history. He embarked on a two-month journey from Maryland to Canada in the spring of 1996 retracing the Underground Railroad, using Henry “Box” Brown’s method of shipping himself in a crate.

Included with Museum AdmissionB&O Members FREE.

This event will be live streamed for public online viewing as well.

I love that the museum is what remains of the old train yard and the number and variety of train cars is remarkable.
