THE DETROIT UNDERGROUND RAILROAD HISTORICAL SOCIETY
What comes to mind when you think of Detroit? You probably think of Motown, the world's "Automobile Capital," and Greektown. Detroit became a crucial city for freedom seekers, looking for a new start up North. The Second Baptist Church of Detroit was one of the last stops on the Underground Railroad for freedom seekers on the way to Canada.
The Detroit Underground Railroad Historical Society (D.U.R.H.S.) was created to retell the story of Detroit's involvement in the journey to freedom. D.U.R.H.S'. mission is to collect, preserve, and disseminate Church history through lectures, tours, and educational programming.
