A research team is now leading workshops and tours in Morgan County to teach young people things they may not have learned in history classes.

Ada Woodson Adams and her husband, Al, purchased an aging Chesterhill home at a sheriff's sale five years ago. 
 
The historic house was a stop on the Underground Railroad.
 
The couple turned it into the Multicultural Genealogical Center.
 
Adams says neighbors and friends helped the family research the Quaker home that helped harbor slaves.
 
"It took many many years of research and finding out what the history was that wasn't written, so it's important to me for young people, black, white, yellow, whoever, to know the total history of America, not just one sided," said Adams.
 
The house contains artwork, cabinetry and woodwork hand-crafted in the 1830s.
 
Adams invites people of all ages to the center to research their history.
 
It's free and open to the public.
