National Park Service “Walk in Tubman’s Footsteps” Walking Tours
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. Tours will begin at 10AM on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Meet your Harriet Tubman National Historical Park Service Ranger at the Harriet Tubman Statue in the heritage center courtyard.
These tours are free and most run two hours 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. Tours will be weather dependent.
