Thank you to Linda who provided me with a exceptional experience during my visit to the museum in March. I enjoyed learning about the local families who were involved in the Underground Railroad. I can't wait to return once the museum opens for the 2 hour tour.

My relatives who were living in Manassas, VA, travelled to DC to visit the White House, where they shook hands with Pres.Lincoln. My great-grandmother and her cousin liked the visit so much, they got back in line. When they reached the front of the line, Pres. Lincoln must have recognized them, because he said. "Girls, it's getting late, you'd better find your parents and go along home." The Hardwich family was active there in Virginia as well as in Skaneateles, NY with the underground railroad. My dad, Harold Hardwich, was a classmate and friend of Hank Bryant, great-nephew to Harriet Tubman. I met his daughter, Judy Bryant, this fall in Auburn, NY.

Although I have yet to visit the museum, when I come, I'll be bringing a friend from Auburn who is the great-great-niece of Harriet Tubman. Her dad and mine were schoolmates in Skaneateles years ago. When I visited her, she showed me a lot of family pictures that were very interesting. My family helped with the Underground Railroad down south and up north as well.

We visited the Museum and also went on the tour. Found them both to be very rich in the history of Slavery. We were very pleased we had the opportunity to visit the museum and go on the tour.

We really enjoyed our museum visit; excellent displays, videos, and layout.

We also enjoyed the Saturday morning bus tour around Keeseville and Peru. It was very informative. smile

Hello, to all of my Museum friends. It has been a true pleasure getting to know you over this past year, and working as your Archivist. What occurred in this region of our country, and the battles honorable people courageously fought in reversing the tide of slavery, needed to be told. You have done this, brilliantly and with heart. I am honored to be working along with you as we begin another busy season at our Museum. Louise Patinelli

This is an exciting journey. A vision that has come to fruition and I must say a little scarey. To be a part of history coming alive to those who have had very little knowledge of the cost of freedom for many in the past and present is mind boggling! May we all be guided in the direction that freedom comes at a precious cost....even today. May the North Star guide US in our efforts in making the museum noteworthy and a message to all who come to visit.
