Some of the earliest anti-slavery events in our nation's history happened in Lancaster County and in other areas of the Southeastern Pennsylvania region. Columbia, Lancaster County is considered to be one of only three places in American where it is claimed that the name Underground Railroad began to be used in the 1830s to describe the secretive system of transporting formerly enslaved people to freedom.

Tours for individuals, couples, families or small groups can be from one to four hours at a flat rate of $50 per hour. Walking tours or in your vehicle. A donation of 25 percent of your fee will be made to the African American Historical Society of South Central Pennsylvania. Morning or afternoon times available every day from now until February 28.
