Niagara Parks to Unveil Commemorative Panels

The Niagara Parks Commission will host a ceremonial plaque unveiling in honour and celebration of leading abolitionist and conductor of the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman, at the site of her historic crossing of the Niagara River into Niagara Falls Canada, in November of 1856. The development and instalment of the bilingual panels are the result of a request made by students from the Harriet Tubman and Lockview Public Schools of St. Catharines, who proposed that a Harriet Tubman Interpretive Panel be created and placed on Niagara Parks land. The new Interpretive Panels detail the life of Harriet Tubman, from her beginnings as a young slave in Maryland to her escape to freedom and subsequent role as the most famous conductor of the Underground Railroad.
