The Lest We Forget Museum of Slavery provides a unique historical perspective into the reality of slavery for Africans brought to America. It is the only museum of its kind in Philadelphia that exhibits authentic slavery artifacts which include hundreds of shackles, chains, coffles, branding irons and other forms of punishing ironware.

LEARN ABOUT HISTORY FROM THE HOUSE THAT LIVED IT!

Many escaped slaves found Philadelphia to be a sanctuary. Our interactive tour continues the journey along the Underground Railroad into the home of Abolitionist William Peters, his wife Mary, their son Judge Richard Peters, and their indentured slave Cornelia Wells.

It was here at the historic Belmont Mansion that many escaped slaves were able to hide safely, and so the mansion became a well-known stop on the Underground Railroad. Cornelia Wells was able to buy her freedom and the freedom of her daughter Jane. Additionally, she became a very successful business woman, selling her famous ginger beer to weary travelers. Cornelia continued to work for the Peters family and was instrumental in helping many runaways find a safe passage into Freedom.
