http://www.abolitionhof.org/home

The National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum is a new exhibit in Peterboro, New York.  According to the website, the museum “honors antislavery abolitionists, their work to end slavery, and the legacy of that struggle, and strives to complete the second and ongoing abolition – the moral conviction to end racism.”  Frederick Douglass was one of the first abolitionists inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005.  The website has information on other abolitionists and their work.  Feel free to check out the website or visit the museum the next time you’re in Central New York!
