Join North Country peers at the North Star Underground Railroad Museum in Ausable Chasm, NY.

Attendees will tour the museum with President Jacqueline Madison who will share the history of the Champlain Line of the Underground Railroad, regional work in freeing formerly enslaved people, and today’s stories of crossing the Northern border.

Jacqueline will share the museum’s history and development as well as plans for the future! She will also provide a history of the area as we’ll venture to local historic sites that were part of the abolition movement and the Underground Railroad which will include the former Quaker Union and the Stephen Keese Smith farm that has the hidden room in the barn.

Following the program, attendees are invited to the Ausable Brewing Company in nearby Keeseville for continued conversation and discussion.
