Jane's Walk 2021: Ferry to Freedom: The Abolitionists of Washington Heights, May 5, 9AM
05/05/2021 09:00 AM - 11:00 AM ET
The Underground Railroad (UGRR) comes to life in this virtual walk, revealing the people, places, and history of a little-known colony of abolitionists who helped develop Washington Heights. We’ll “walk” from the Hudson (site of a sugar refinery and ferry run by a documented agent of the UGRR) to uptown’s only abolitionist church to the home at 857 Riverside, the last remnant of this colony still standing—and threatened today with demolition.Event Registration is closed.
