Rochester

Our community has a rich Underground Railroad history, with famous conductors and friends like Frederick Douglass, Isaac and Amy Post, Susan B. Anthony and others who found an excellent reception in our city for their advocacy. A visit to Rochester brings the past forward to help influence the future.

We can help bring history to life for your students, ensuring their understanding of historic events that shaped pivotal decisions by our Government forefathers and leading activists of many decades that still impact our multi-cultural community today.

Students

Students enjoy taking part in history. It helps them understand the laws that underpin our Country–and how great people can spring from humble beginnings. They begin to recognize concepts like “it takes a village” and “liberty for all” as pertinent to a just society.

Tours

Our Tours, which can be customized to fit your schedule and interests, create new awareness of historical events. You’ll learn how one or two people; or a small but committed group, was able to create change to benefit the powerless. We go another step to engage each audience to imagine a place for themselves to create change in their communities.
