As Executive Director of the Oldham County History Center, Theiss has led research and programs that have been identified significant by the National Park Service to the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom, hosting archaeological investigations since 2005 on the Bibb Escapes/Gatewood Plantation. Participants on the tours will drive their own cars in a small caravan, to specific sites of activities from freedom seekers during Antebellum Era in Oldham County including grave sites, auction sites and house sites.
