“Oberlin is perhaps the most important station along the whole line of the Underground Railway. It has rendered the most important services to Freedom. It is second only to Canada as an asylum for the hunted fugitive.” Based off of our popular history walk, this tour will feature stories about Oberlin’s most famous freedom seekers and people known to have helped them make their way to freedom.
