Freedom Park

Once the location of a Contraband camp, this park is dedicated to interpreting the African American experience during the war. The five exhibits feature life-sized figures and sculptures, and structures representing a plantation house and a refugee dwelling. This is a sample interpretive panel from the site that discusses the contraband camps established in Helena (click here to view). Freedom Park is the first location in Arkansas designated as a National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom site.
