  • So glad we visited here. Amazing history. Amazing story around the house and the effort to help the enslaved realize freedom. Really well presented. Learned so much. Thankful for the opportunity to...  more »
  • The lady who did my tour was amazing informative and extremely knowledgeable. Overwhelming emotions ran thru me but I left educated enlightened and I would suggest anyone who is the area to stop there take the tour open your eyes and your heart and have tissues on hand. If I ever go to Memphis again I will go back here. I didn't take photos out of respect. Next time I will ask if it's allowed.
  • This is a house, that at one time was on the slave underground. It's a small house, but the tour is guided. The guide did a superb job of telling that story of the house and painted a picture of the slave trade in general. Worth going to if you are interested in the slave condition and history. Cost was $12 per adult.
