Harriet Tubman National Historical Park

Established on January 10, 2017 in Auburn, NY, Harriet Tubman National Historical Park is located at the site where Tubman lived and worshiped, caring for family members and other formerly enslaved people seeking safe haven in the North.

Known as the "Moses of her People" for her extraordinary work with abolitionist causes, Harriet Tubman's heroic efforts led more than 300 persons out of slavery.

To commemorate her life's work, this national park includes the Harriet Tubman Visitor Center, the Tubman Home for the Aged, and the Harriet Tubman Residence. The Thompson Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, a modest, two-story, frame structure constructed in 1891 where the Underground Railroad conductor worshiped during her time in Auburn, is also part of the 32-acre park.

Across the street from the park, visitors can visit Harriet Tubman's grave at Fort Hill Cemetery.
