Town Clock Church Hosts Underground Railroad Tours Saturday | New

NEW ALBANY – Tours of the Underground Railroad City Clock Church will take place on Saturdays, every hour, on the hour, beginning at 10 a.m. with the last tour at 3 p.m.

The historic church’s antebellum congregation was involved in the Underground Railroad before, during, and after the Civil War. Tour guides will provide the history of the Underground Railroad movement in the metropolitan area. The visit is free and open to the public. The church is now the home of the Second Baptist Congregation at 300 E. Main St. in New Albany.

Attendees are asked to maintain a safe social distance or wear masks indoors and be vaccinated against COVID and reinforced if eligible so that we can protect ourselves against the virus as much as possible.

The community is invited to participate in this free event. Parking is available on the street or possibly on the lot in front of the church on Third and Main streets. The construction of Main Street is a problem for the participants.

The tour is sponsored by the Friends of the Town Clock Church; a nonprofit organization dedicated to the ongoing maintenance, beautification, fundraising, and long-term planning of the historic building. To help with the ongoing restoration of the church and gardens, visit the website or contact Jerry Finn, Treasurer of Friends of Town Clock Church, 502-645-2332, [email protected]
