Legacy and honors
- The Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection at Temple University Library houses the William Still Collection, including his personal papers dating from 1865 through 1899.
- H.R. 1635, passed by Congress in 1997, authorized the United States National Park Service to establish the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom program to identify associated sites and popularize the Underground Railroad. The program also affirmed the national importance of Still as a leading Underground Railroad agent in a major center of abolition.
