Underground Railroad Museum at the Belmont Mansion

The Belmont Mansion was built in 1742 by an English lawyer named William Peters. As the Revolution approached, his son took charge of the estate and hosted many notable figures including George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson. In the 250 years that followed, the house served as a model farm to promote scientific agriculture and a part of the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition of 1876.

Today, the American Women’s Heritage Society maintains the house and conducts tours through its hallowed halls, giving visitors a glimpse into the past. In addition to the historically decorated interior, tour-goers can explore the house's Underground Railroad Museum to learn about the people who fought against slavery by helping others escape its clutches. The museum features a variety of displays on both well-known and obscure history, plus a self-guided tour that permits visitors to listen to audio presentations.

It's a hidden piece of history, we didn't know about it until we saw it in a Groupon. Glad we went, it was quite interesting.
