Public Tour

On this tour, we will delve into the storied history of African Americans on the railroad. From its inception, enslaved people were used to build many of the early railroads in the country, especially in the south. Since then, the railroad has been involved in the fight for African American equality in America. By exploring our collection of rolling stock we will reflect on the legacy of African American railroading from the dark days of slavery and the Civil War, through segregation and into the Civil Rights Movement.

This tour will be led by the B&O’s chief curator June 18 & 20 and the archivist June 19.
