Emancipation Day at Button Farm

October 31, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$10

Celebrate the day in 1864 when Maryland changed its constitution to abolish slavery, six months before the end of the Civil War. This outdoor, open-air event includes an emancipation-themed, self-guided tour of the farm and slave cemetery accessible on your phone through our QR portal. Scavenger hunts, farm animals, “safe” hands-on history, and musical acts will help to round out the day. Fresh air, masks, and social distancing protocols will be in place.

Reserved parking ($10) and more info at:
