Hale Farm and Village (2686 Oak Hill Rd., Bath) doesn’t open for the season fulltime until June. But tonight and tomorrow, it will host educational tours called A Fugitive’s Path: Escape on the Underground Railroad. Guests will assume the roles of slaves escaping north to freedom in 1859 through the so-called “railroad” (a network of safe homes and friendly people), which ran through Northeast Ohio. The program will include information about race relations and abolitionist sentiment in this area at that time. Since part of the program is outdoors, dress appropriately. Tours leave every 20 minutes from 6-8:40 p.m. and last about two hours. Tickets are $15 for Western Reserve Historical Society members; $18 for non-members. Call 330.666.3711 for reservations. (The tours also run March 25-26, April 9, 10, 17, 23 and 24.) — Anastasia Pantsios
