"My home, after all, was down in Maryland..."
Experience Harriet Tubman's home, where she was born into slavery, grew into a young woman determined to gain freedom, and where she returned to rescue her family and friends to bring them north to freedom.
In the heart of Dorchester County, Maryland, amid farm fields, creeks, and marshes, the Maryland State Park Service and the National Park Service have partnered to present the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center, opening to the public on March 11, 2017. Offering exhibits, an audio-visual program, visitor information, a museum store, research library, and seasonal interpretive programs, the visitor center will be the central hub for understanding Tubman's life, legacy, and the landscapes and waterways that remain preserved just as this remarkable freedom fighter would recall.
