The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center is now open in Dorchester County, Maryland! The exhibits inside the center — located just a few miles from where Harriet Tubman was born — share this American hero’s story in powerful and moving ways. This 10,000-square-foot building and its 17-acre park make an excellent launching point for exploring the Tubman Byway, a self-guided driving tour of Underground Railroad-related sites on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The visitor center, which had its grand opening March 10-12, 2017, has attracted much attention — more than 40 media outlets were on hand to cover the opening! (See highlights of the media coverage.) The Tubman Visitor Center is open daily for self-guided tours, 9am to 5pm, except major holidays, and is located at 4068 Golden Hill Rd, Church Creek, MD 21622.
