Latta Plantation continues ‘Ride on the Underground Railroad’

The Underground Railroad scavenger hunt was held Wednesday at historic Latta Plantation. The event is part of the plantation’s “Ride on the Underground Railroad” program, which gives children a chance to take on the identity of a slave fleeing to freedom. Students on the scavenger hunt search for clues to successfully escape to freedom, with conductors to guide them along the way. The program also includes a tour of the historic plantation house.
