Our VisionOur objective is to give you, the people, a sense that you have been heard, and to stimulate the next generation. We are proud to share our heritage with other people in a community-type unity. In November of 1993, I opened the museum to the public and became the curator of the Underground Railroad Museum. We will strengthen our network of understanding which, in turn, will stimulate our youth. We have an extensive collection of publications, books, memorabilia and other articles on display at the Underground Railroad Museum, at 206 High Street in Flushing, Ohio. We want to share our knowledge of the Underground Railroad and the thousands of slaves that escaped the brutal effects of slavery in the South. We want to preserve and support our culture and community by contributing to a better quality of life in the 21 st century. For groups wishing to bring a little bit of history into their classroom, we have a traveling trunk. We find other organizations that have a need to learn, used this program as an excellent resource. The traveling trunk is like a mini-museum containing a variety of hands-on objects. The museum offers Underground Railroad tours in connection to the Ohio Valley. Other facts regarding the Underground Railroad Museum and its purpose as a foundation is to fund the museum and to furnish scholarships for local students, to be operated exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary, and educational purposes, as may be designated by a majority of the Board of Trustees; to accept, hold administer, invest and disburse such funds as may, from time to time be given to it by any person, persons, or corporations.
