Stories are told within historically-furnished buildings and visitors of all ages can write on slate boards, ring the bell, and try walking on stilts at the hands-on Little Red Schoolhouse. Visitors can also hear stories about abolition and the Underground Railroad, the Civil War, and Oberlin's unique history while touring the town on one of several history walks.
