  • Description

    The local museum is celebrating the life and legacy of Harriet Tubman. Tubman was a former slave who lived and grew up on the Brodas Plantation in Dorchester County, Maryland, during the first half of the 19th century. She escaped slavery and returned 19 times to rescue more than 300 people from slavery – taking part in the Underground Railroad activity.
     
    The museum showcases several exhibits as well as a short movie about her. Make sure not to miss the magnificent Harriet Tubman mural by Michael Rosato, located in front of the museum.
     
    The idea to commemorate Tubman’s in the area was of a local historian, Addie Clash Travers. Travers gathered the community to establish the Harriet Tubman Organization, Inc in 1983. Their mission “is to develop programs and services for children and families and to preserve the history and memory of Harriet Tubman by offering the general public an interpretive history of her achievements.”
