Nearly two years after the formal establishment of the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park in Auburn, tremendous progress has been made at the two main properties that are part of the landmark.
Over the summer, a pair of rangers were temporarily assigned to the abolitionist’s former South Street property. The rangers help bolster the visitor experience at the site, especially during the Harriet Tubman Home’s busiest months.
There have been other developments over the past few months. In separate interviews with The Citizen, National Park Service project lead Frank Barrows and Harriet Tubman Home President Karen Hill provided updates on the park’s progress and what more needs to be done to have a full-fledged national park in Cayuga County.
