It’s been more than a year since the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park was formally announced, and now there are National Parks Service Rangers who are ready to get to work.
Parks Service Superintendent Frank Barrows tells Finger Lakes News Radio it’s a big step forward.
Two of the rangers have been getting their feet on the ground in Auburn. Allie Hinman from the Seward House Museum said on Wednesday’s Finger Lakes Morning News they’ve met with the museum staff.
Jessica Bowes has a doctoral degree in archaeology from Syracuse University.
Rufai Shardow’s expertise includes Frederick Douglass and the Underground Railroad.
Bowes and Shardow, along with Kimberley Szewczyk, will be at the Tubman Park through September, which will allow the park to be open on Sundays throughout the summer.
