Free & Safe: The Underground Railroad in Vermont

This stunning exhibit chronicles the stories of Simon and Jesse, two fugitives from slavery who found shelter at Rokeby in the 1830s. Free & Safe traces their stories from slavery to freedom, introduces the abolitionist Robinsons who called Rokeby home, and explores the turbulent decades leading up to the Civil War.

Historic Robinson Home

The Robinson House

The house tour is an intimate experience, during which visitors encounter the stories of all four generations of the Robinsons on their own terms — and in their own spaces. Due to COVID-19, house tours are not available at this time, but check back. An alternative experience may be available soon.

Rokeby is currently closed for the season, but will be opening for the season on May 9th. Stay tuned!
