  • Walking through history was informative and very revealing about our past in a good way. Our docent was knowledgeable and encouraged questions. Note the picture of the ropes and the Wooden Key on the bed. The ropes were the mattress on the beds in 1800s. Every night the Wooden Key was placed against the knob which are called a "bed bugs". Frequently fingers would get caught in the key when the mattress ropes were tighten hence the expression "don't the bedbugs bite."
  • Historical architecture and American politics. I highly recommend this stop. The tour of Levi & Catharine Coffin's 19th century home is Great including secret hiding places and a basement kitchen with running water supplied by wooden pipe from a local artesian well.
  • The Catherine and Levi Coffin house was has been maintained beautifully. My docent has been there for decades. She had a wealth of knowledge. I'm so glad this history has been preserved. It's a tribute to the brave freedom seekers who saught refuge there.
  • This is an interesting part of American history. Many people risked everything to help enslaved people and this shares part of that story. Also, it is a very well preserved house and a beautiful new interpretive center.
  • ¨it was fun we went to a conservation center we learned abut the underground railroad there was a well inside.¨
