  • My grandmother and I took the tour and we were on a bit of a time crunch so I will definitely be back to savor the history as it should be. We loved Carol and I could have listened to her talk about history for hours. Kerry was incredibly accommodating and knowledgeable and we loved seeing the features of each room.
  • A very important piece of history. It is one thing to be taught about the underground railroad, but the tour allows you to walk a small piece underground. The tour and experience are incredibly enlightening and I highly recommend visiting.
  • Arrived too close to closing, but a member gave us 20 minutes of her time to give a fast, brief tour, including walking through the tunnel (modified for modern building code safety). This was our third UGRR stop on a short vacation, two other stops in Illinois, along I-80. Common thread of UGRR is a pastor or religious person acting as a stop for fleeing prisoners. And the town knew of it, keeping quiet. The 1850 Fugitive Slave Act was well explained by our guide; a law designed to return blacks to slavery (influenced by payment of money or enormous fines), even if a captured black could prove they were free men, having papers, that was not allowed facts in the hearing.
  • This tour is 90% about Joseph Goodrich (milton founder) and 10% if that, about the underground railroad. It was as if, they were uncomfortable about the history and it was very unenthusiastically conveyed. Do not go if you would like to learn more about "black" history! They were very friendly and personable.
  • Great experience great facts that they are the only historical site that has had the experience of an actual slave been through their tunnel great story and pictures of how the man who built the Milton house was kind and very helpful to everyone including African-Americans and those who were in slavery
