Discover Beacon Hill's Underground Railroad history while walking its cobbled stones streets. On this historic adventure you'll see the old hidden alley's slave catchers once chased slaves, and where they hid for safety. You'll see the spots on the underground railroad that runways hid. You'll hear the stories of the brave souls that risked their lives to keep them save. This is a time in history we should never forget, and it's often overlooked in Boston's history.
