Rokeby Farm
Ferrisburgh, Vermont

Working with another firm, Steve Germann wrote an interpretive plan for an exhibit to tell the story of this major and well-documented stop on the Underground Railroad from the 1830 up to the Civil War. The farm was owned by Rowland and Rachel Robinson, Abolitionist Quakers who acted on their beliefs as early as the 1830s, when Abolition sentiment was more radical than it would be in the 1850s. In an interpretation based mainly on letters, a historic farm, and few artifacts, the team created an immersive and theatrical backdrop for this riveting story.
