New Harriet Tubman Visitors Center Opens In Maryland

New Harriet Tubman Visitors Center Opens In Maryland! 

State and federal park officials described the new Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center as a structure built to erase myths and to create a real-life picture of one of America’s most celebrated icons.

“It’s opening the doors and letting the public experience the story of Tubman, who is a household name, but few people know her real story,” said Tony Cohen, a historian who consulted on the project.

After eight years of planning, the visitor center is a reality itself. Rising from a clearing among farm fields and marshes in southern Dorchester County, Tubman’s native home, the $22 million facility represents the centerpiece of the first national park to honor an African-American woman.
