about us

Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway

A scenic driving tour highlighting sites that help tell the story of the Underground Railroad “conductor” and American hero Harriet Tubman, who was born here in Dorchester County and led many out of slavery to freedom in the mid-1800s.

The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway is a “National Road,” which means it’s been designated one of the country’s best byways for its historic and cultural value. The Byway also includes the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument, lands designated by President Obama in 2013.

The 125-mile byway includes more than 30 sites. Visit just one or take the tour to see them all. Find out more by stopping by the Dorchester County Visitor Center, 2 Rose Hill Place in Cambridge.

Or request a free “Finding a Way to Freedom” map and guide, which describes all the sites and their locations, at info@VisitDorchester.org or 800.522.TOUR. You can also download a free audio guide and find out more about the Byway at HarrietTubmanByway.org.
