Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park Visitor Center"The Original Team Tubman"

Introduction to Quest

Harriet Tubman relied on members of the Underground Railroad to assist her in her journeys to freedom. In this bonus quest you will meet those who supported her with food, water, shelter and medical care as she emancipated herself and others. We call this group of supporters the Original Team Tubman. This bonus quest is similar to a letter-boxing activity where teams will follow a map to find various stations on the Underground Railroad and meet the stationmasters. Most of this bonus quest is outside. Please bring hats, sunglasses, water, sunscreen, and anything else necessary for an outdoor letter-boxing activity.

Park hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day except Christmas. Arrival before 3 p.m. is recommended to allow time to complete the entire quest. There will only be 6 quest bags available.

The park sees lower visitation Tuesday through Thursday.
