I truly enjoyed the tour. The guide was very informative. The downside is I saw very few signs leading to the house. We had gotten directions in advance and were able to find it but almost went past it. Something of this historical relevance should be better marked.
Slave Haven Underground Railroad can be found at N 2nd St 826. The following is offered: Art Museums & Galleries. The entry is present with us since Sep 9, 2010 and was last updated on Nov 14, 2013. In Memphis there are 14 other Art Museums & Galleries. An overview can be found here.
This tiny house stands as a reminder of both a dark period in American history and the efforts of many to remedy the wrongs of slavery. A merchant named Jacob Burkle, who ran a stockyard before the American Civil War, provided a haven for many runaway slaves on their journey through the Underground Railroad. Here you can see where they waited for the instructions that helped them find their way...
