In 1998, Congress passed legislation that created the National Parks Service’s Network to Freedom program. This is a system of 700 historic sites in 39 states and Washington, D.C., that commemorates the freedom seekers and allies who were part of the Underground Railroad. In March 2022, the National Park Service (NPS) added 16 additional sites to this program.  

The new sites are in Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. They include plantations, cemeteries, memorials, safe houses, walking tours, and more. Some of the new sites tell the stories of specific freedom seekers and their experiences.
