Ages for which our activities are most appropriate: 
Underground railroad history project researches and preserves the local and national history of the anti-slavery and underground railroad movements, their international connections, and their legacies to later struggles; it engages in public education and dialogue about these movements and their relevance to modern society.


Since its incorporation in 2003, this effort has created a strong program of education and research that celebrates and preserves the story of the Underground Railroad in Albany and the Capital Region and its relationship with us today. URHPCR has identified the key primary and secondary figures and their activities, and has developed a general outline of the local history of the movement.
