Walking Tours Description

Bayard Rustin's West Chester

This walking tour, new for 2024, highlights pivotal moments in the lifetime of Civil Rights icon Bayard Rustin, organizer of the 1963 March on Washington. Follow in Bayard’s footsteps through the center of West Chester and learn about the experiences that helped shape him into the influential peace activist and adviser to Martin Luther King Jr. in the 20th century.

The Underground Railroad of West Chester

The Underground Railroad was a network of people offering shelter and aid to enslaved men, women and children on their journeys to freedom. This small-group walking tour will visit eight locations around downtown West Chester that served as a backdrop for the people involved in this clandestine operation. Learn about the conductors, financiers, and stations that made the Underground Railroad possible, and discover the stories of some of those that made it to freedom and settled in West Chester.
