Jul 28, 2016 10:11AM ● By Neighbors Magazines

Children and adults can experience what it was like to be a passenger on the Underground Railroad Aug. 27 and 28 at historic Graue Mill. This theatrical experience begins with a skit in which passengers will meet the legendary Harriet Tubman. Then, participants will follow Hinsdale blacksmith John Coe on a journey down Salt Creek to Graue Mill. The Underground Railroad actually operated in Hinsdale, Oak Brook, Lyons, Downers Grove, and other nearby towns. Experience the historical sights and sounds of the Underground Railroad. “Journeys” begin at 6pm and 8:15pm. The presentation lasts about an hour. Fee applies. Each Journey is limited to 45 travelers. The entrance fee is $15 for adults and $10 for children. Bring a flashlight and dress for the weather because portions of the program take place outside. For reservations, call 630-920-9720 from 10am–4pm. Reservations open Aug. 2.
