Tours of the Underground Railroad in Bucks County

For thousands of escaped slaves in the 18th and 19th centuries, the Underground Railroad represented hope for a new life. This secret network of hidden, safe places relied on abolitionists and kind communities to aid runaways on their journey northward. Bucks County was home to many important stops on the railroad from taverns and churches to privately owned farms, many of which can still be visited today. You can read more about this on Visit Bucks County's website, you can also view some of the pictures related to this in the gallery above.

Currently the museum is offering PRIVATE, in-person tours for groups of 15 or more, or, online virtual tours of the different Underground Railroad sites throughout Bucks County. For more information about which tour option best fits your group, please email Erika Land, the Museum's Program Manager, at eland@aamuseumbucks.org.
