National Underground Railroad Freedom Center

American Heritage Girls partnered with the NURFC in Fall 2009 to provide girl members with the opportunity to earn requirements for the Freedom Seekers badge. NURFC is a one of a kind museum located in Cincinnati, OH. The purpose of the center is to tell the story of the struggle for freedom in the United States through exhibits and programs that focus on the history of America’s battle to rid slavery. It includes the stories of the many men and women of all backgrounds who hated slavery and their development of a secret network of escape routes that came to be called “the Underground Railroad.” http://www.nurfc.org/
