We have visited Auburn many times but only recently checked out the Harriet Tubman Home. It is definitely well-worth seeking out as a special destination. If you were ever distracted by strange historians who say that slaves were well-treated by their masters, well, this place...More

Last month this site became the latest National Park’s site. It is a must visit. Harriet Tubman is one of the most important people in the country’s history. Come and learn about this amazing American Hero.

While the history is fascinating surrounding the Harriet Tubman Home, it is the presentation that brings history alive. Tour guide Paul is passionate about Harriet Tubman's history, and his enthusiasm spills over into his presentation. If you are a large group, submit a tour request...More
