The Barnard House is located on 60 plus acres of Chester County farmland where abolitionists aided freedom seekers and tirelessly worked to secure for all people “the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity.” Generations of the Barnard Family were involved in various anti-slavery activities since the Revolutionary War. Learn of state and federal actions toward slavery, of Old Kennett Meeting, the Marlborough Riot, and the founding and building of Longwood Progressive Meetinghouse, a beacon of reform, along with President Lincoln's connections with Chester County. Hear of Harriet Shephard and her party’s path to freedom, including Barnard Station, a documented stop on the Underground Railroad less than six miles from the Delaware border, a slave state. Enjoy the self-guided Trail Walk July 3 and 4 at Barnard House during park hours (QR codes available). Begin at Barnard House on South Wawaset Road, located on left just north of Router 52 roundabout, across from the side entrance to Pocopson Home.
