EDUCATIONAL AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAMS
The G. W. Adams Educational Center has available speakers who can come to your location to give a presentation on the mansion and it's history as well as the Underground Railroad in general. This service is free of charge to civic organizations, government agencies, clubs and schools. Please contact us to set up a speaking engagements/field trips at:
We also welcome schools to come and experience a field trip to Prospect Place. There is no charge to schools to bring students to the mansion for a two hour presentation/tour. Field trips do NOT include information about hauntings/ghosts. Field trips are historical/educational presentations about the history of the mansion and the Underground Railroad ONLY.
