Come see our temporary exhibit “Brown Opened the Eyes of the World" open now!

View letters written by John Brown; his son Jason Brown; members of the Secret Six, a group of abolitionists who supported John Brown and his efforts against slavery; and citizens who offer unique perspectives on Brown and his raid on Harpers Ferry.

The exhibit will only remain open until mid-December, so make sure you stop in before then!
