Underground Railroad tour offered on Quakertown Trolley
SALEM– Because of recent interest, the Salem Historical Society is offering a, Underground Railroad tour on the Quakertown Trolley at 1 p.m. Sunday. The docent takes passengers back in time to the late 1850’s. Following the sharing of many stories, the travelers will return to the 21st century with a better understanding of the plight of slaves, the working of the Underground Railroad and the abolitionist movement that flourished in Salem prior to the Civil War.
Since the homes are private and entrance not possible, flashed on a screen inside the trolley will be slides to show pictures of the insides of the homes, Underground Railroad hiding places, and several abolitionists who lived in or visited them. The slides will also help clarify the historical information presented during the program.
The tour will last approximately an hour with loading at 239 S. Lundy Ave. and a minimum is necessary. Cost is $15 a person. Call 330-337-6733 to reserve participation. The call will be returned.
