The house stands like it was just yesterday, our tour guide was extremely knowledgeably and pointed out interesting issues, However, i felt that the video information in the museum was a better rendering of the actual events, and was very tastefully done. I would recommend...More

I was a little disappointed in this. I really had hoped to learn more about the Underground Railroad. The house tour essentially had next to nothing to do with the Underground Railroad and I felt it was wasted time, as I've been in and learned...More

Rokeby is an amazing place. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect after reading the description of this historical house on a flyer. I knew it had belonged to a single family for four generations and that they were active in the Underground Railroad. Well...More

Rokeby Museum is a little known gem. The place was lived in by the same family from the 1790s to the 1950s and the grand sweep of history of the United Sates, specifically Vermont, can be seen here. There's the main house, lots of out...More
