Interpretive Center Project Description

In order for Underground Railroad Education Center to continue to expand its outreach and share the empowering reinterpretation of underground railroad history and its relevance for us today, UREC needs a facility fully dedicated to programs, events, exhibits, video documentary production and viewing, research, workforce development, children’s engagement, and the arts. This facility would be the Interpretive Center of Underground Railroad Education Center.
