Bucktown Village Store

Bucktown Village Store

In the mid-19th century, Bucktown was a larger community with two stores, a blacksmith shop, and shipyards on the Transquaking River. Here, between 1834 and 1836, 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 life-long health problems and spiritual visions that changed her views and guided the rest of her life. Today, the Bucktown Village Foundation operates the restored general store, which is open six days per week, Monday-Saturday, 9am-4pm. Free admission, but donations are welcome. The store also offers tours and rents bikes, canoes and kayaks.

Hours of Operation: Monday-Saturday, 9am-4pm
