St James Church’s Underground Railroad Experience is Feb 5, 2017 at the conclusion of the 10:15 a.m. service. At the close of the service parishioners and visitors will be brought to the church's porch (bell tower, ground floor) where they will hear from their plantation owner.
Then, in secret, they will be led by a conductor and a watchman to the safety of Canada (the church). The trip is a long and dangerous one. The journey has four stops: a visit with Harriet Tubman, a visit with Frederick Douglas, a visit with the Quakers, and a visit with a NJ abolitionist, Ms Abigail, all in different rooms of the church.
