Virtual Vermonter - The Rokeby Museum

From 1793 to 1961, the site of the Rokeby Museum was the home to four generations of a Quaker family of farmers, abolitionists, artists and authors. It was also one of the best documented underground railroad sites in the country. Today it is a historic site and national historic landmark featuring fifty acres of hiking trails, period-furnished rooms and exhibits in the main house and outbuildings. The Museum also sponsors school programs (available early spring to late fall) and classroom presentations on the underground railroad (year round).

The Rokeby Museum is open mid-May to mid-October, Tuesday through Sunday, 10-4. Walking trails are open daylight hours year round. Guided tours of the house are available every 45 minute. The cost of admission is $6/adults, $4/seniors, $2/children twelve and under. Their Website offers a wealth of information on the Museum, in addition to a calendar of events. The Rokeby Museum is located on Route 7 in Ferrisburg. They can be reached at 802-877-3406.
