National Underground Railroad Freedom Center: This is a STANDOUT in Ohio tourism and a national treasure. Throughout the history of mankind, we have enslaved our fellow brothers and sisters. The fight to combat hatred is documented on the banks of the Ohio River in Cincinnati. The Freedom Center has stunning architecture inside, a recreated slave pen inside and tributes to the suffering and the heroes that beat all odds to make a difference. Every turn inside these walls is met with inspiration. Join the fight which wages on today because this story of struggle is ongoing. You will not leave without being moved by miracles of survival and haunted by the vile and inhumane acts done by humans. The Center’s three pavilions celebrate courage, cooperation and perseverance.
