AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY
Known as the birthplace of the sit-in movement, Greensboro’s place in African American — and U.S. — history is well-
known. But, African American history in Greensboro goes back to the Revolutionary War and continues to shape the Gate
City today. The New Garden Woods, now known as the Guilford College Woods, were a known meeting place on the
Underground Railroad where Levi and Vestal Coffin assisted runaways going to Indiana from 1819 to 1826. Within these
woods remains a champion tulip poplar tree, over 300 years old, known as the Underground Railroad Tree. Today, you can
navigate the trail as a simulation of how fugitives seeking freedom navigated the same woods. The trail leads to the tree
standing as a silent witness to Underground Railroad activities on the land that served as a crossroad to freedom.
