OVERVIEW

The Rokeby Museum tells the story of the four generations of the Robinson family, and of Vermont & New England social history from the 1790s to 1961.

Rokeby was one of the most prosperous farms in the Champlain Valley by the mid-nineteenth century, and the best documented stop on the Underground Railroad in Vermont and, probably, the country.

The Rokeby Museum is a stop on the Vermont African American Heritage Trail.
