Nearby Attractions


  • 2 mile(s) from Woodlawn Farms. Underground Railroad Driving Tour. Various Jacksonville Locations. Jacksonville was one of the many stations along the Underground Railroad and one of the busiest during the mid-1800s. Prominent abolitionists like Edward Beecher, first president of Illinois College and brother to Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Jonathan B. Turner and Benjamin Henderson, a former slave, were among the many that were relentless in the pursuit of freedom for all. The Underground Railroad was neither a railroad nor underground. It was a series of safe places where abolitionists helped runaways, “freedom seekers,” find an escape from slavery. Networks existed across the United States, to help move people into areas of the country where they could find freedom. In Jacksonville we have at least nine documented sites which were important to this endeavor during the years before the Civil War.
