Service Description

The half day tour introduces you to the life and legacy of Harriet Tubman (then known as Araminta Ross / Minty) in Dorchester County. As we travel back in time, you will be introduced to some of the sites that played a major role in her life – like the Courthouse where her first rescue was performed, and the wharf where the enslaved entered Dorchester County. As we travel into Tubman Country, we will visit a historic African-American one room schoolhouse that dates back to 1867. Our journey will continue on the same roads on which freedom was sought, as we visit the federal and state park dedicated to her life, the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center. ​Afterwards, we will visit her childhood home, Brodess Farm, where she and her family were enslaved. We'll also visit the Bucktown General Store where she was injured by a 2 lb weight thrown at her head. This injury is storied to be the source of her spiritual visions, which led her to freedom. Inside of this experience, you will also be introduced to the popular “Take My Hand Mural,” painted on the Harriet Tubman Museum and Educational Center building. * All tours begin at the Dorchester County Visitor Center – 2 Rose Hill Place, Cambridge, MD
