At the National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall. Also referred to as Freedom House, this 2-story log structure was built circa 1875 by Richard Jones, a former slave in the historic Jonesville community that is now part of Poolesville. A fascinating example of local African American heritage. Take a look at our Dig Deeper – Historic African American Communities page to learn more this and other stories from Montgomery County.
