School holiday activities put spotlight on Harriet Tubman

Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman’s courageous trips through Niagara County, helping enslaved people reach freedom in Canada, will be the topic of a special school holiday program from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 15 at the Niagara History Center, 215 Niagara St., Lockport.

Designed for children ages 7-12, the program costs $10 and includes a snack.

Participants will learn about the Suspension Bridge, sample foods that might have been eaten on the run, make an 1850s craft, match underground code words and phrases with their meanings, put together a bundle to carry possessions, and see if problem-solving and overcoming obstacles will lead to freedom.

Reservations are required by calling 434-7433 or emailing Ann Marie Linnabery at annmarie@niagarahistory.org. Adults are encouraged to drop off children for the program.
