Description

Explore the rich and sometimes dark history behind Beacon Hill's Underground Railroad on a self-guided walking tour using an audio-guided app. See the old hidden alley where slave catchers once chased runaways. Visit the stops on the underground railroad where runaway slaves hid and hear the stories of the brave souls that risked their lives to keep them safe. Start the tour at the iconic Charles Street meeting house, the building that Harriet Tubman, Fredrick Douglas, and many abolitionist leaders gave powerful speeches to end slavery. End the tour at the African Meeting house, a historic site in Boston that is often overlooked by tours. Follow your app's GPS that navigates you step by step through Beacon Hill and shares the stories with you as you walk. Feel like you have a personal tour guide with you every step of the way, only it's on your phone and you move at your own pace, stopping whenever you like.
