Family Heritage House Museum is a gallery and resource center for the study of African-American achievements.


The Family Heritage House Museum welcomes visits by all individuals, community groups, and families. We want to inspire love of family, history, service, and advocate the importance of African-American culture for all of our community.


The National Park Service has evaluated this FACILITY as making a significant contribution to the understanding of the Underground Railroad in American history and it meets the requirements for inclusion in the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom.

The Family Heritage House Museum invites museum visitors to spend time viewing the videos and books in the museum's "Underground Railroad" collection, a special private collection available upon request.
