The Underground Railroad Revisited

Trinity Community Center 705 Curry Road, Rotterdam, NY

Join with Paul and Mary Liz Stewart, independent researchers and co-founders of Underground Railroad Education Center as they share a new interpretation of a very old story and explain the various initiatives in which Underground Railroad Education Center is engaged as it works to connect the public with this empowering local history and its relevance for us today.

A Schenectady Valentine

Over a glass of wine, we’ll delve into our archives of historic love letters to tease out the passion penned on the pages. So inspired, guests will be invited to hand craft a valentine of their own.

Join us!
