The Racine Heritage Museum‘s feature exhibit this February is This Train is Bound for Glory: Racine County’s Underground Railroad, which is filled with stories associated with the county’s abolitionist movement such as Joshua Glover, Monument Square, Caroline Quarrls, Colonel Utley, and A.P. Dutton.

Visitors are able to connect stories and people featured in exhibits throughout the museum by noticing highlighted points on the museum map and a scavenger hunt for younger visitors.

To honor Black History Month, our gift shop offers written accounts by local authors that tell the stories of escape, community and heroism. In addition, the booklet, Roots of Freedom, Underground Railroad Heritage Trail, will be given to anyone making a purchase in the shop this month.

Open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, the Racine Heritage Museum is located at 701 Main St. For more information, please call (262) 636-3926.
