Burlington County has been called the "Cradle of Emancipation." No New Jersey county has a richer black historical presence than Burlington County. No less than sixteen sites in nine municipalities, many directly related to the underground railroad movement, have been identified to demonstrate three centuries of transformation of the black community of Burlington County.
