As a National Historic Landmark, Johnson House Historic Site, Inc. is one of the few remaining Underground Railroad Stations in Philadelphia open to the public. Located in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia, the Johnson House was home to three generations of a Quaker family who worked with European Americans and African Americans, freed and enslaved, to abolish slavery and improve living conditions for freed African Americans. http://www.johnsonhouse.org/ Contact: Cornelia Swinson, cswinson@johnsonhouse.org

A Partnership of 16 extraordinary Philadelphia houses, destinations and museums, Historic Germantown tells the stories of American Liberty and the everyday people who fought for it, reflecting a neighborhood of independence-seekers, community-builders, and American Dreamers.  For more information, visit historicgermantown.org.
