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.  more »

  • This beautiful historic building is slowly and carefully being restored to it's original glory. The history behind this site is important. It was one of the first colleges to accept students regardless of race or gender. It is moving to learn this history and unsettling. Definitely take a tour if it is available.
  • Very nice,well kept, lots of history
