About the event

The Underground Railroad Living Museum Flight to Freedom Tour is a “storytelling” re-enactment of the original Underground Railroad passage that operated between 1840 and 1863. 

On the tour visitors will be shackled with wristbands at the entrance of the tour and begin their journey by entering

through the “Door of No Return,” on Goree Island in Africa. As this journey begins, visitors transform into passengers on the Underground Railroad and are led to Freedom by a conductor. Passengers hide from bounty hunters, cross the Ohio river, take refuge in a safe house in Indiana which is owned by Abolitionist Levi Coffin. 

And finally passengers move to “Midnight,” the code name for Detroit and take safe haven at the First Congregational Church of Detroit before moving on to Canada and “Freedom.” The cost is $41 and Includes lunch in GreekTown at the PEGASUS TAVERNA.  Van leaves at 8:45 AM. See Ruth Wenzel for more details.
