Harriet Tubman National Historical Park

Auburn, NY – The Harriet Tubman National Historical Park celebrates the life of the former slave who is known for her extraordinary work with abolitionist causes, personally leading over 300 people out of slavery and into freedom.  The park includes the Harriet Tubman Visitor Center, the Tubman Home for the Aged, and the Harriet Tubman Residence.  The Thompson Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, a modest, two-story, frame structure constructed in 1891 where the Underground Railroad conductor worshiped during her time in Auburn, is also part of the 32-acre park. Learn about Harriet Tubman’s core values through a guided tour of the property. Across the street from the park, visitors can visit Harriet Tubman’s grave at Fort Hill Cemetery.
