The nonprofit William C Goodridge Freedom Center and Underground Railroad Museum is one of few African American cultural sites in the United States.
The museum is located at Goodridge’s former home at 123 E. Philadelphia St. in York City, Pennsylvania.
Goodridge was a biracial entrepreneur who rose from slavery to business prominence in 19th Century Pennsylvania. This renaissance man became one of the wealthiest African Americans in South Central Pennsylvania— thanks to barber shops, a baldness remedy, and big buildings. 
He owned numerous properties and operated multiple businesses, while secretly risking it all to transport slaves to freedom. 
During renovations in the 1890s, workers found a hideaway (believed to have been hand-dug for freedom seekers) under the kitchen of the home.
The William C. Goodridge Freedom Center and Underground Railroad Museum explores the secret life of a man whose public success built a five-story commercial building right in the center of York, but whose most important legacy was built in the shadows.  
The Crispus Attucks Association of York has overseen the nonprofit center for about 20 years. In 2003, it became one of the first Underground Railroad Network to Freedom sites designated by the National Park Service.
