Network to Freedom: Building UGRR Connections

Saturday, Sept. 23, from 1-2:30pm

FREE! Join us at the Downers Grove Museum as we celebrate the acceptance of the 1846 Israel and Avis Blodgett’s House into the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom! The Network to Freedom, a National Park Service program, coordinates preservation and education efforts nationwide associated with the Underground Railroad. We’ll learn more about the Network to Freedom and about the connection of the Blodgett House and other UGRR sites in DuPage County. The Blodgett House will also be open for tours. Pre-registration is required.
