A Glimpse Through the Underground Railroad Museum allows visitors to experience the unique collections that the museum has to offer from the comfort of their homes. Dr. John Mattox founded the museum in 2003 along with his wife, Rosalind Mattox. Over the last two decades, the museum has acquired over 8,000 items. These collections highlight the following collections within the museum; African American Heritage, Enslaved Disciplinary Artifacts, Civil War, Transatlantic Slave Trade, Life on the Plantation, and the Underground Railroad. These collections allow the visitor a chance to envision themselves, taking a step back in time and walk the footsteps of many during this turbulent era in the earlier days of our nation. We hope this online exhibit inspires and moves the visitors from this site to step foot in the Underground Railroad Museum Located in Flushing, Ohio.
