“Walk in Tubman’s Footsteps” Walking Tours
Throughout the months of July and August, Harriet Tubman National Historical Park rangers will be conducting “Walk in Tubman’s Footsteps” tours on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Meet your ranger at the Harriet Tubman statue in the courtyard of the Equal Rights Heritage Center, 25 South Street, Auburn. Come hear about Tubman’s 50 years in freedom in Auburn and the people she knew as friends and compatriots in the struggle for abolition, women’s suffrage, and equal rights. Stops include South Street Area Historic District, Seward Park, Fort Hill Cemetery, Thompson Memorial AME Zion Church on Parker Street, and more.
These tours are free, run 90 minutes, and cover two miles. Some walking surfaces are uneven and elevated. Comfortable walking shoes and water are recommended. Bottled drinks and snacks are available for purchase in the Taste NY Market inside the Equal Rights Heritage Center/Auburn NY Visitor Center.
The meeting location may change throughout the summer, so please call Harriet Tubman National Historical Park at (315) 882-8060 for the latest information.
