Our Full-Day Tour
Walk in the Footsteps of an American Legend
Our full-day tour requires 5 or more participants to operate and expands to visit the places where Harriet worked and hid before her escape to freedom. It begins at the Dorchester Visitor Center in Cambridge, with the half-day tour (including the Harriet Tubman State Park Visitor Center, her birthplace site, and the Bucktown Store). Following a lunch at an area restaurant, we continue to Webb Cabin, where an under-the-floor "potato-hole" shows the sort of place freedom-seekers could have hidden. We stop briefly at the site of the Thompson Farm where Harriet was living when she escaped, and at the Laverton House, where the owners hid her before she traveled to freedom. Our last stop is at the Linchester Mill, which was used by both slaves, abolitionists, and slave catchers. We then return to the Dorchester Visitor Center in Cambridge. The tour including lunch lasts approximately 7 hours.
