I purposed to visit so I could tell my grandchildren about the Underground Railroad and how Vermont played a part in it. The museum was well laid out, and the tour of the Robinson House was fantastic. While much creds go to the Dakin family for building the farm, I learned so much about what was done to help abolish slavery while the Robinsons occupied the land. The tour guide really knew her stuff, and she was very patient as I straddled behind her on the house tour. To actually stand in the rooms where history was made was rewarding. The museum on the second floor of the Education Center was moving. I encourage any African-American passing through Vermont to stop and take in some of the history. Personally, I never knew Vermont was so instrumental in abolishing slavery, and I'm glad I decided to come here. This is the stuff that's not being taught in the history books.
