The weekend of March 10th, 11th, and 12th will feature many events celebrating the life and inspiration of Dorchester County native and American Hero, Harriet Tubman.
New Tubman Visitor Center opens to public March 11
A weekend of events will help celebrate the grand opening of the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center in Church Creek. This center has been a decade in the making, and it was local volunteers who persevered to share the stories and legacy of Tubman to a wider audience. The new visitor center (pictured above) opens to the public on March 11, and we’re expecting big crowds from near and far. All are welcome to the events happening thoughout the weekend.
