Harriet Ross Tubman (1822-1913) Internationally-known former slave and freedom fighter who led many slaves to freedom on the Underground Railroad.

Long Wharf was an important port in the 19th century where people, goods, and information traveled by boat. By following the Choptank River to its head, runaway slaves came within a day’s travel to the Underground Railroad stations in Delaware.

Stanley Institute (Rock School) was founded in 1865. It was the first community-owned school in Dorchester County, and it was one of the state’s first Black schools. Recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.
