Memphis Sights

Slave Haven Underground Railroad Museum

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

The main house of this museum features displays on slave life and the Underground Railroad that enabled slaves to escape to free states and Canada. It's located in an older neighborhood a few miles north of downtown on the former estate of Jacobs Burkle, a German immigrant and wealthy resident of Memphis in the mid-19th century.
