Description

History of the CT Freedom Trail

In recognizing the importance to Connecticut of numerous sites in the state that are associated with the heritage and movement towards freedom of its African American citizens, the Connecticut General Assembly in 1995 authorized that these locations be developed into a Freedom Trail.

Included on the trail are buildings reported to have been used on the Underground Railroad, sites associated with the Amistad case of 1839-1842, and gravesites, monuments, homes, and other structures that represent the concept of freedom so cherished in the American mind. It is hoped that those who visit some or all of the

locations on the Freedom Trail will gain a greater appreciation for the experiences and contributions of Connecticut's African Americans.

Windsor Freedom Trail Walking Tour

Participants of the Windsor Freedom Trail Walking Tour will Visit Freedom Trail Sites

along a 3.9 mile walk through Windsor Historic District. This event pays tribute to those who fled to the South in search of freedom by way of the Underground Railroad.
