Thank you for a wonderful 2023 season!

Our 2023 season has come to an end, and we’d like to thank all who visited us this past season, enjoying our exhibits, programs, and events. We look forward to welcoming everyone back when we reopen in May. We have exciting things planned for 2024, so please check back frequently or sign up for program and event announcements.

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 historic home 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. Guided tours of the historic home and outbuildings are available Friday–Monday, with tours at 11 am and 2 pm. Tours last approximately one hour.
