The 17-acre future State Park will be located adjacent to the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Dorchester County near the town of Church Creek on Route 335.
Pets are permitted in the Park.
On March 9, 2013, the State of Maryland -- along with several hundred national, state and local supporters -- broke ground for the 17-acre Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park and Visitor Center, commemorating the life and legacy of the legendary abolitionist. The 125-mile Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway was also unveiled during the Join the Journey Centennial Celebration, which marked the 100th anniversary of Tubman’s death.
Although construction will be complete by March 2016, interpretive exhibits and the orientation film will not be complete until early 2017.
Additional information regarding the history of Harriet Tubman is available on the file below, which is in a PDF format that requires Adobe Reader. To get the free Adobe Reader go to Adobe.com.
