2018 ROAD TO FREEDOM: An Interactive Underground Railroad Experience

Saturday, April 14th

at French Creek Reservation & Burrell Homestead

fugitiveFace your fears and test your courage while playing the role of a pre-Civil War slave travelling the Underground Railroad. Flee from your captors and travel by foot along a wooded path toward the home of the Burrells (Sheffield settlers and known supporters of the abolitionist movement), encountering potential friends and foes along your escape to the north.

Recommended for those aged 8 years and older, this reenactment role-play event will provide dramatic and emotion-evoking performances fit to leave a lasting impression, blending arts with history-based educational content. (Note – Participants should expect uneven trail surfaces and be dressed appropriately for the weather conditions. Strollers, wheelchairs, and walkers prohibited for safety reasons.)

Groups leave on foot from Pine Tree Picnic Area’s Shelter #1 for hour-long performances at scheduled intervals.
