Field Trip: The Harriet Tubman Museum
In 1981, Father Richard Keil purchased an 8,500-square foot building in downtown Macon, turning it into The Harriet Tubman Center for Spiritual and Cultural Awareness which opened its doors to the public in 1985.

Named in honor of the courageous African American woman, known as the “Black Moses,” who led hundreds of other slaves to freedom and served as Union spy, scout, and nurse during the Civil War, the Harriet Tubman Center has grown over the years to become one of the largest institutions of its type in the region.

The Museum features an exhibit on William and Ellen Craft, escaped slaves who are featured in a Georgia Story.
