About North Star Underground Railroad Museum

Situated within the Town of Chesterfield Heritage Center, the North Star Underground Railroad Museum explores the history of the storied Champlain Line. It tells the tales of former enslaved African Americans who passed through Champlain in the 19th century on their way to find freedom in Quebec and Ontario in Canada.

Learn how the Underground Railroad functioned as a “Gateway to Freedom”, with the multimedia story of John Thomas’ escape from slavery particularly poignant. You can follow the lives of runaway slaves who traveled by stagecoach and rail from New York City and New England before being transported across the Upper Hudson River by steamboats, barges and canal boats.

Hear the slavery debates that were occurring across the United States at the time and witness a former slave leg iron found hidden in a nearby Quaker home. Men and women who provided safe houses and organized petitions are also highlighted, honoring their role in the antislavery revolution.

Getting there

The North Star Underground Railroad Museum is located near the sandstone gorge of Ausable Chasm, around five minutes’ drive from Keeseville. Albany International Airport is just over two hours’ drive south, while Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport is 1.5 hours north.
