“A step back into time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

I visited this site in March 2012. You get an excellent feel on what life would have been like if you were a run away slave. The information is wonderful too. It's a great place for families.

“Well done pre-civil war museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Places where escaped slaves were hidden. The curators were very well informed. This is an important historic site.

“Its ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Not exciting unless you like that sort of thing. If you do this would be a great place to stop and visit.

“Historic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Great historic place to see. I went there with my sons class and it's no small order to keep there attention, but they did. You even go through a tunnel used by the underground railroad. A real must see.

“A piece of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

This was an excellent tour. We enjoyed touring the Milton House and learning the history behind it. We were surprised to hear that they could save cigar bands to purchase items in the late 1800's similar to S & H greenstamps - however since this was a nondrinking and nonsmoking establishment, the item was paid for in cash. Hearing and seeing the old hotels makes one think differently of traveling today.
The highlight of the tour was definitely seeing the root cellar and the tunnel to the log cabin as part of the Underground Railroad.
