Much of Brookline’s history remains hidden in plain view. This walking tour will visit three sites that tell the key stories of slavery and freedom in our town. Our tour will begin at Town Hall, where you’ll look for the evidence of slavery right inside the front door. The walk will then stop at an Underground Railroad house where you’ll hear the story of one of the most daring escapes to freedom. We’ll end our walk at the Old Burying Ground on Walnut St. The walk is not strenuous; however, those who need to can drive the short distances between sites.
