The Bellefonte Art Museum of Centre County will present “Underground Railroad: A Journey to Freedom,” a permanent exhibit to commemorate the role of our region in the operations of the Underground Railroad.
Although several area locations were used by enslaved people seeking freedom, there is no place in the Bellefonte Borough where a visitor might learn about that tragic time in our history. The exhibit contains information about the operations of the Underground Railroad, art work depicting the courage and suffering of the enslaved African Americans and stories about the local citizens who helped and supported them. The museum will be open from noon until 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 17.
