Are you bold enough to embark on the Underground Railroad?

Before you answer, maybe extra information would help with the decision of whether to stay with what you know, or go, go, go.

An underground railroad and abolitionist history walk is 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Aug. 17, 24 or 31 embarking from near the front steps of First Church, U.C.C. at the northwest corner of Main Street and Lorain Street in Oberlin.

The stories along the way will bring to life the danger for those who sought freedom and their determination to overcome all setbacks.

The history walk is presented by Oberlin Heritage Center at 73 1/2 S. Professor St. in Oberlin.

Tickets cost $6 for adults. The walks are capped at 20 people. Buy a ticket at secure.oberlinheritage.org/events.shtml.

Groups of eight or more may call the tour coordinator at 440-774-1700.

The history walk will be cancelled if it is raining at start time, and participants may request refunds or transfers.
