I thought I knew about the anti-slavery history of this part of the country, but apparently not. Both of the short films were very interesting and informative. The lady at the desk was obviously doing this because she loves what she does.

Definitely worth a visit for anyone going to Ausable Chasm. The museum is fascinating and very well laid out with videos and many informative pictures and posters.

Tiny underground railroad museum right next to the Ausable Chasm entrance. The museum is very informative and full of history. This is a great place if you are a history buff. May not be for small children. My 4 year old got bored.
