  • John Parker legacy is that of a key figure on the Underground Railroad. Dewey’s vast knowledge of Parker’s life and accomplishments made the tour special!  more »
  • Come see history come alive with Dewey, the best to take you back to the adventures of times of John Parker.  more »
  • Fascinating little museum honoring the remarkable John Parker. We were treated to a fantastic personal presentation by a staff member whose name I regret to admit I forgot. He described in great detail the amazing life and accomplishments of Mr. Parker.
  • This place is incredible! Get John Parker's autobiography there as well and read it! Then revisit it, it'll blow your mind.
