Johnson House Historic Site

An Underground Railroad Station and Museum in Philadelphia


Working and Walking Together
This exciting collaboration between the Johnson House and the Germantown Mennonite Historic Meetinghouse was launched in the summer of 2010. The summer program provides groups of students to study the ways that Germantown residents have worked walked together over the years – from the early settlers that established the community to the Underground Railroad travelers and workers who transformed it into a “beacon of hope.”

As a part of the Working and Walking Together program, students had the opportunity to participate in the Ubuntu Project, which seeks to create a memorial to those who traveled on the Underground Railroad.
