Hamilton Avenue Road to Freedom Living History Tour

This Saturday, September 21st, from 11am to 4pm, Cincinnati area residents can enjoy a history tour of Hamilton Avenue and the College Hill area. Sponsored by the Mt. Healthy, and the North College Hill  and College Hill Historical Societies, the Clovernook Center, the Twin Towers Senior Living Community, and the College Hill Bicentennial,  the tour will include ten sites where historic characters will bring alive the rich abolitionist history of the communities along Hamilton Avenue:  From the Liberty Party conventions in the 1840's to the Underground Railroad agents and conductors—black and white—who led 28 "freedom seekers" out of Boone County Kentucky on April 2, 1853, through College Hill and then on to begin a new life in Canada.  Attendees can enjoy historic sites on the avenue, a dramatic production of the Escape of the 28 at the new Aiken High School at 1 pm and 3 pm, period dance and music, children's activities and living history characters throughout the day at each site.

UC’s own undergraduate history major, Samuel Hahn, had an internship with the College Hill Historical Society, helping to prepare for the tour and creating a video giving the historical background that tour participants will need to enjoy and understand the abolitionist reenactments they see throughout the day.

Here is a link to the video Sam helped create: Hamilton Avenue: Road To Freedom

See the history department’s webpage in the near future for a more in depth look at Sam Hahn’s internship. The piece will also discuss how the internships one can connect with through UC’s History Department can help academic and professional development for undergraduates.
