Bucktown Village Store
The Bucktown Village Store is an authentic 19th century country store and is operated by the Bucktown Village Foundation, a 501c3 organization. The store operates as a museum featuring authentic African American artifacts related to slavery, various displays, and gifts within a country store setting.
Between 1834 and 1836 at this location, Harriet Tubman received a blow to her head that fractured her skull while she attempted to assist a fellow enslaved man. This has been called Tubman's first public act of defiance. As a result of the injury, she experienced lifelong health problems and spiritual visions that changed her views and guided the rest of her life.
