Destination Freedom Self-Guided Walking Tour
July 27, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
The Destination Freedom Walking Tour is a self-guided map designed to educate visitors on the rich history of the Underground Railroad Movement in the Northeast Pennsylvania region. On this tour, participants can view the nearby sites of significance as they pertain to this time period and learn more about the area residents who once aided former slaves on their journey towards freedom. The Lackawanna Heritage Valley National State and Heritage Area has supported this project in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the National Park Service. It is our intention to benefit the community through this unique learning tool by emphasizing the importance of local history and heritage.”
Maps are currently available at the Waverly Community House Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm in the Main Offices, and on Saturday from 9am-1pm in the Abington Visitor’s Center (Comm North Wing). They are also available outside those hours by appointment; reservations can be made by calling (570) 586-8191, Ext 7.
