This is a unique opportunity to explore history in a hands-on fashion. I like how it gives a different perspective on the Underground Railroad and challenges us to question the narrative. This is a house full of history in Arbor Hill that would have been torn down. Now it is a point of pride in the neighborhood.
A real gem! Highly informative, and great educational programming.
This is not traditional house museum, but rather a work in progress that evokes a true sense of history--a history that is often ignored or poorly represented. It's an emotional immersive experience, and I recommend it highly.
What a great spot to learn about our local history and how it relates to today. I highly recommend visiting!
I am glad to see and share the Stephen and Harriet Myers Historic Site. It is a place in process but the people who manage it have done such a wonderful job restoring it. They spend time with each guest explaining with great care the story of the building and its connection with the Underground Railroad. It is an awesome project. They show how the Underground Railroad is connected to today and today's events. They share a story about Albany that most people are very much unaware of and they share a story of the Underground Railroad that is different from the common story people often offer about the Underground Railroad.
What a unique and wonderful place--while a little rough around the edges as the building is still in process of restoration, it is a great place to feel history and increase my understanding of how important the underground railroad project was and still is relevant today. I learned deeply that freedom isn't free. Highly recommend visiting.
