Georgetown Walking Tour
The free brochure for this self-guided walking tour is available at the Visitors Center – 601 W. First Street.
The printed brochure guides you through the Georgetown Neighborhood with its deep ties to the Underground Railroad. Many of the buildings in Georgetown were built before the Civil War and were lived in or owned by free African-Americans who helped enslaved people to freedom. The neighborhood and its collection of buildings is recognized by the National Park Service as a Network to Freedom district, the first in the US, for its documented links to the Underground Railroad
