Johnson House Historic Site, Inc. is Philadelphia’s few accessible, intact historic site and stop on the Underground Railroad open for tours . During the 19th century, and for several generations beyond, the Johnson House was owned by a family of Quaker abolitionists who worked with other European Americans, and African Americans — free and enslaved – to secure safe passage to freedom along the extensive network of clandestine routes and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. When visiting Johnson House you will acquire an understanding of the audacious men and women who labored for the freedom of others, and gain an appreciation for the courageous decisions made by the enslaved to embark on a perilous, hope-filled journey to freedom.
Johnson House will re-open for limited Saturday tours beginning March 12, 2021, 12 pm – 4 pm. Email us to schedule a tour: firstname.lastname@example.org This decision comes after Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney announced that museums were able to re-open practicing social distancing and wearing a mask.
