Program offered twice: at 6:00 pm and at 8:00 pm This interactive program showcases a significant and often stereotyped aspect of our nation’s history, the Underground Railroad. As program participants, you will journey through the event as free African Americans with freedom papers. You will have returned to the South to meet enslaved family members, that were left behind, and lead them to freedom. Meet several characters, portrayed by costumed interpreters, who will represent the different groups of people living during that time: slave holders, Quakers, a bounty hunter, free African Americans, and more. This program was written and compiled by Locust Grove volunteer and Girl Scout Catherine Bache for her Gold Award Project. The event will be held outside and will last approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes.You will be walking all over the Locust Grove property, so dress appropriately and wear comfortable walking shoes. Friday, September 5th, 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm. Reservations are required and space is limited - call 502-897-9845. Admission: $10. Suggested age range: 12 and up
