I never knew that the underground railroad went as far west as Wisconsin, my home state. I never knew that there were Seventh Day Baptists, and that they were involved in the anti-slavery movement. I never knew much about the early days of Wisconsin history....More

This small but wonderfully interesting museum should be a must visit if you are in the Milton, WI area. Part of the Underground Railroad, it gives you an idea what run-a-way slave had to go through to get to Canada..

Very interesting & educational. Some areas might be difficult for tall people to get through as they are underground with not much head room. Also, some paths are very narrow, It was very interesting to learn about Milton's roll in the history of slavery.
