Follow the North Star

For those of you that might not know, Conner Prairie is a living history museum located in Fishers, IN (just minutes from Indianapolis). They began a program several years ago that is based on the role Indiana played on the Underground Railroad – Follow the North Star.

Each visitor takes on the role of a runaway slave and encounters a slave sale along with a wide range of people that may or may not help you on your way to freedom. This is one of the most dramatic, interactive programs I have ever been a part of.

They only do the program during special times of the year and it is happening this month. Be sure to check out more information on their site. The cost is $19 and is definitely worth it.
