An ongoing exhibit that brings the Underground Railroad to life by focusing on Simon and Jesse, two fugitives from slavery who found shelter here in the 1830s. The exhibit traces their stories from slavery to freedom, introduces the abolitionist Robinson family, who called Rokeby home, and explores the turbulent decades leading up to the Civil War.
