Historic Eleutherian College is a historical site, dedicated to teaching the truth on the underground railroad. The system that operated in southeastern Indiana. System is used because it was indeed a system. A well organized system, that helped those kept in bondage, to obtain freedom.

It was not only freedom from chains of body, but also chains of the mind. Bodily freedom was a foundation. The mind needed education to complete the process of total freedom.

  • I wish I'd been able to visit on a day of the once a month tours of this college. It was both a college and a stop on the Underground Railroad.

  • A clear jewel from our past! What a great place to visit! I recommend stopping by when you're in the area. They are working magic on new restorations and are always pleased to show folks around.

  • Hidden historical gem! ♥️
  • My two fourth generation aunts were graduates of Eleutherian College: Virginia Harris and Lettie Harris. Their father, Rev. Joseph Harris, was a member and supporter of the Neil's Creek Anti-Slavery Society.
