Home School Tour Underground Railroad Site

2 families of home schooled children made an appointment to tour my house today. The youngsters seemed fascinated with my stories of early Michigan history, progress in Jonesville, the tale of the Privy Digger, and my tour of the oldest house in Hillsdale County. The Munro House has a connection to the Underground Railroad. The kids enjoyed a walk through the tunnel that slaves may have used on their trip to freedom and a description with photos of our Secret Room in which runaway slaves had allegedly spent time on their way to freedom in Canada. I give a 45-60 minute tour for a nominal fee that children and adults seem to enjoy.
