The Underground Railroad in Indiana

The Underground Railroad in Indiana

The Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library is pleased to present an exceptional program, “The Underground Railroad in Indiana.”

Indiana has an interesting history of Underground Railroad operations. Many escaped slaves traveled across the state in the years prior to and during the Civil War.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources speaker, Jeannie Regan-Dinius will share the history of the Underground Railroad in the Hoosier State. She will share stories, facts and answer questions.

In honor of Black History Month, the highly-anticipated program is scheduled for Monday, February 13 at 7 p.m. at the Plainfield Public Library in the West Room.

“We are excited to bring such a unique and educational program to the community,” explains Reann Poray, Manager of the Indiana Room at the Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library. The Indiana Room is a plethora of Indiana history and genealogy. Poray encourages anyone who has geneology questions or wants to learn more to stop by anytime. Monday nights from 6 – 8 p.m. the Library hosts, Shaking the Leaves of Your Family Tree, which is dedicated genealogy help by our specialized Indiana Room Librarians. All of these programs are free to attend.
